When indecision strikes, I know where to turn: Pinterest.
Chalkboard paint would be fun to mix things up.
A mirror in the back gives the illusion of depth.
Then while browsing CL I came across this beauty, taken from a home in Jersey that was demolished. It was love at first click but unfortunately it is way too big for our space.
Looking at it's rather simple design got me thinking and scheming with Dan to maybe just build one out of wood and trim. Seems easy enough, no? Bottom line: I still want a faux mantle. It's on The List.
P.S. Do you ever look back through all the images you've pinned? I look at my boards every now and then and I have to say I love them! Using Pinterest has really helped me narrow down the styles I'm drawn to over and over. Check them all out here- I bet you'll like them too! All photos via my Pinterest.
