Playful Summer Mantel

1 views

Good morning, fabulous people! I hope you had a nice Memorial Day weekend. Ours was great! We worked in the yard like crazies and tackled various DIY projects (more to come on that soon!). On Monday the kids {ours and my niece and nephews} totally loved playing in the bubbles, the sprinkler and anything else they came up with. I worked on my Summer Mantel yesterday too. I wanted to keep it simple and fun, but I wanted to only use things I already had.

Mission accomplished.

You might recognize a few things from last year’s Summer Mantel. πŸ˜‰ The life ring is SO super cool and old and chippy. It was calling my name. I had to use it! And I also used my DIY Playing Card Specimen Art to anchor the entire vignette. Everything is so fun and playful!

I snagged the Childcraft books at the thrift store for 0.25 each. I might have happy danced just a little bit. I loved the Childcraft books when I grew up. And they are so pretty and colorful too!

This lantern has been around for a few years. I added two pressure gauges that my dad saved for me.

Swoon.

I love the chalkboard sign from last year. It’s a keeper! πŸ™‚

Again. Seriously awesome, I know.

I got the two wood stools at TJMaxx on clearance. I LOVE them!

Here are a few more photos just for fun!

I hope you enjoyed that quick look-see of my Simple & Playful Summer Mantel! πŸ™‚

It was fun to put together!

What is your favorite element on my mantel?

xoxo
