FIREPLACE MANTLE INTO THE PERFECT HEADBOARD
Hi there welcome friends to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air! Summer is wonderful but also brings allot of work and preparation. I have been planting , power washing etc.. how about you? I always scan the free section of Craig's List and low and behold A very nice couple on the Island listed a huge all wood fancy fire place mantle, actually I have been looking for some time for one that would be big enough to star as a king size headboard. As it turned out the size of the mantle was a perfect match!
Someone built this beauty and gave it a wonderful Faux paint treatment but for my style I just lightly milk painted it with a cream color and left some of the brownish shading to show through.
This bedroom is decorated in Red , White and blue so I just did a little shading of the red and blue and added sweet dreams.
Where the opening is I added some pretty red material. also a shabby garland with a woodsey star. I am thinking about painting the mantle a really dark color or I just may use it in the lodge room which is the lanai. She is a beauty though!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
