2nd Time Around: Mantel Mirror

 

 

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Please join us by linking a post that features something that is a 2nd Time Around to you…something from a garage sale, flea market, thrift store, estate sale, etc. Please link your post rather than your blog, and link back to this blog. Thank you for participating.

 

Thought I would share with all of you an early Christmas present I bought my daughter at the antique mall where I have a booth. This is part of an old mantel that has been painted and distressed. It looks great above her mantel against the stone fireplace. She decorated it for fall Saturday when we put it up there, but soon it will be ready to decorate for Christmas! Maybe I’ll feature it again then. Later, it will need to have a wire across the back so it can be hung, and not have to lean against the wall, but we were anxious to get it in place!

Good Morning Diane, This mantel piece looks wonderful on your daughter's mantel shelf. It gives it a whole new look. Her fall decorations are charming. This is a great find. I know your daughter is pleased with your thoughtful gift.

Happy fall season to you and yours.
