New Location For An Old Mantel

Hello Everyone.
Hope your week is going good.

I had to look at the calendar this week to see it really is October here in Chicago land!  We have had temperatures in the 80's and high 70's this week.  Crazy.  It is suppose to drop this weekend back to the normal temps of 50's for us.  With being a summer girl I will take all these nice days as they happen.  We all know what will be coming soon Ugh!!!!!!

Ok I showed you in my last post that I did a switch a roo with some things in my living room decor.

I got a new architectural piece and that started a whole change for the living room!  

This is the new piece of chippy goodness.

It needed a mantel below it.  Down came the vintage mantel I had hanging in the master bedroom.
This was my vignette on this wall for summer.  Those things are all put away now for the fall and winter months.

So this mantel needed a pretty vignette added.

Found these lovelies in storage.  They needed to be rewired to work as lamps.  Since I did not need any new lamps  I  asked Terry to do his magic and make these into candles sticks for me.

Ta Da!!!!  We kept the marble base, took off that ugly metal base under the marble base and painted these white with a cream paint wash.    Terry added this candle stick piece to the top from some old candle sticks he found at Goodwill.  Love the marble and crystal accents on these now.

They look sweet with my angels on the mantel.

Moved my gather sign and sitting angel to the mantel too.

I am liking the serenity and peaceful feel of the mantel vignette.

As the holidays approach I can see lots of pretty with this mantel for Christmas.

Have a super next couple of days and a wonderful weekend.

Happy New Week Everyone.

This week end Terry and I went junkin and found a new treasure that made my heart sing.  I will give you a sneak peak at that later in this post.

Remember how I had this old vintage door hanging behind my re loved chest in the living room.

It looked good here but when I got my new window from our trip to Michigan I felt like it was competing too much with that being right next to it over the couch.

New Window from Michigan trip.

Just a wee bit too much Architectural happening on this small wall!  If I have learned one thing with my decor crazy it is that sometimes I have to try something and live with it for a little while to see if the look is going to work.  While these pieces are beautiful alone they were not working well too close together.

This was my angel up over the mantel in my bedroom.

Very pretty up in my bedroom but I ended up moving that mantel out of our room for a new place in the house which you will see in later post.  So without the mantel she needed a new place too.

The door came down from behind this chest and my angel on the old chippy window went up in it's place.  Softer and more serene.

Found this pretty and chippy and full of character architectural piece this week end at a cute shop I frequent in Geneva.  Denise's Adornments Shop.

Sneak peak at the new place this architectural piece has over the mantel moved from the Master Bedroom to the living room.  I hope to have this area done this week to show you the completed new design for this space.

My chippy cottage sign got a new home too over the china cabinet.

Hoping to finish up the new look of the mantel moved to the living room this week along with my new architectural piece as the center piece.  So stay tuned for this change up.  Have a great day and always thank you for spending time on my blog and leaving your sweet comments.
