sunday, my husband found time to make a fireplace mantel for my garden. I have a large vine (chocolate vine) growing on the fence and tucked the mantel into it. I love how it turned out, and cannot wait for the roses (next to it) to start blooming.
the oval mirror was found at a local antique store and I dry brushed some white paint on it.
this mantel went together in just an hour. he used 5 cedar boards-($33) and two porch posts-($30) to make it. I’ve had the applique for awhile and don’t remember what it cost.
the chair started out tike this.
more white paint and a cute rose applique and it looks like this now. the ruffled seat cover, I made from a pink sheet.
I added the enamel number to the tin and added the tulips.
here’s a close up of the applique on the chair. you can find it here.
if you are still reading, thank you:)
