Jamie from the design blog kreyv offered two suggestions for my year-round mantle redo as part of her new [restyle] series.

I loved both of these ideas, but decided to go with the design on the right since I didn’t have to think too hard—I just have the clock instead of the mirror.
She showed you my BEFORE picture. It showcases the place where I park my junk and largely ignore it all--both the junk and the design!
Just so you know, I was completely embarrassed for anyone to see this, but I let it go for the sake of keeping it real!
I was determined to redo the mantle decorations quickly, but, in fact I didn’t get all of the way there. I think I did pretty well so far. I’d like to add some fabric to the center frame and maybe the large one instead of pictures since they are mostly covered by the other pictures. And, deciding what picture to put in the the small frame is a big deal (as if I can’t change it!?!) for me.
So, let’s just call this the MIDDLE picture and I hope to display the AFTER picture soon!
Am I on the right track? I tried to take my picture from the same angle as the design picture, but it didn’t work so well. But, I think I stayed pretty close to the design idea.
I’d love to know what you think. Any changes or other ideas?
