Gray and Green Spring Mantel

 
 
The weather here in the Midwest has been BEAUTIFUL for about two weeks now and I have been enjoying the warmer temps and all the sunshine and couldn't wait to get my Spring mantel underway!
 
The trees have buds and early Spring flowers are starting to pop up so I am keeping my fingers crossed that we are done with the snow.
 
I enjoyed putting away all the winter decor and breaking out greenery and pieces with color.
 
I brightened up my mantel with pops of green, yellow, and gray.

If you have been following along you will probably recognize my new gray lantern that I bought last week at the thrift store.


 
 
 I love it so much and think it looks great on the mantel. It holds a green Ball jar and a bunch of forsythia branches for texture and color.


 





 

I got this wooden letter "S" and tried out a new stain on it. Its the Rustoleum "Sunbleached" gray stain you can read about HERE, and I love how it turned out! It was my first time using that stain and I can't wait to use it again.



 
 
Here is the view from the kitchen looking into the front room.....


 

 
 
 
I added a green throw pillow on my white chair to tie it all together and I love how the gray, green, and yellow work together with the rest of the room.
 
Perfect colors for Spring!

Have a great week!
