~ the mantel gets a dressing ~






Our local metal craftsman applied the zinc top with the copper trim to the mantel we made out of two sheets of plywood. After mounting it to the existing mantel we broke out the embellishments. The large octagonal metal piece is off a vintage chicken coup picked up at a local antique mall. The deer head was in storage and the tall planters I bought at Round Top Antique Show earlier this year. Just goes to show you buy what you like when you see it...you never know when you might be able to mix and match for the look you want.

What a great combination of fun items you've pulled together. It looks so inviting for warm weather. Love the zinc and copper, it will weather so prettily.

What a beautiful outdoor area! If I had that I don't think I'd ever come inside.
