Fall Mantel 2012

What I’m sharing with you guys today is pretty monumental in my life.

Seeing as though you’ve probably seen the title of this post and at least seen the first few pictures, you might be wondering why pictures of a mantel are monumental.

The reason it’s monumental is because it’s the first time I’ve ever had a mantel to decorate for Fall. All you people out there that have mantels to decorate every season have been spoiled.

But without further adieu, here’s my first ever styled mantel…

Fall Mantel

I’ll be honest, I didn’t have a real vision about what I wanted it to look like. I had a few ideas, but I basically just went out and bought a bunch of stuff and hoped it would all look good in the end. :)

Here’s the full shot of it.

I think it turned out pretty good if I do say so myself and I’m pleased with my first ever Fall mantel.

Here are a few close up shots.

    This looks beautiful, Megan! So many rustic touches. My favourite is the empty frame with the Fall banner attached.
