Spring Mantel: Time To Transform!

I adore springtime.  I know it must be coming soon.  Here in Northeast Pennsylvania, we still have a coating of snow on the ground from this past week’s storm.  I am soooooo ready for spring!  I love the concept of new life and change … spring refreshes and rejuvenates me.  I am just itching for it.  In the meantime, I thought I would prepare for the season with a little fireplace mantel transformation.  I love a good makeover. Here is my before just for fun…I give you my Valentine’s Day mantel:

And my new and fresh Spring mantel!

Isn’t it like a breath of fresh air?
Aaaahhhhhhhh.

I used Old White chalk paint for the window frame
as well as the smaller mirror.

Fun mirror I found on the cheap out thrifting. 
Of course I painted it.  And added
some glaze.

Look at all those nooks and crannies!

My theme is birds!

I have a little globe obsession as in when I see
one out thrifting, I pick it up.  I love them! 
This was $3 at Salvation Army
which I thought was a great deal!

I really like the change.
