Golden Mantel

My trip to Goodwill (to update the mantel above my fireplace) was a success!!!  I went with my inspiration photo in mind and came home with a large gold frame.... not a mirror like my inspiration, but I think this frame is going to be perfect (eventually).  See it resting on the mantel?

Living Room

It was only $8.  Yes, only $8!!!

I thought the gold frame was great, but the double-matting and the artwork.... mmmm, not so much my style.  So, the work began... I removed the matting and the artwork, then laid out the cardboard backing for the frame....

Then I painted the cardboard the color of the trim throughout my house...

Once the paint was dry, I took out a few colorful paints....

And started to create artwork for the frame...

I finished the painting and it's outside drying... so, tomorrow I'll have a new display on the fireplace mantel.  For now, I'll give you a glimpse of the finished artwork.... this is one corner....

I'll see you tomorrow!!!
