Vintage Botanical Mantel

Vintage Botanical Mantel

I think my favorite find this year was this vintage fireplace mantel.  You may see how we found and installed the fireplace here.  I luv that I can change it up and style it for every season and more!  Here's the vintage mantel decorated for spring with some botanical book pages, vintage copper frames, spring flowers, copper candlesticks, and some old windows.


I found these botanical book pages when I discovered I ran out of ink for our printer...  I had an old flower garden textbook that I found on our bookshelves that was filled with botanical photo pages.  What a find, and now I will have an abundance of them for different seasons.  So if you are out thrifting, look for those old flower books!





I started by hanging a couple of vintage windows that I had picked up in Maine last summer.


I framed the botanical book pages into 8 X 10 vintage copper frames that I found on Etsy.  They even look cute just sitting on top of the mantel.











I hung the botanicals onto the vintage windows with fishing line and just a few tacks.  




Added a few antique brass candles and a little blooming forsythia.  Super simple!













Pin these Ideas for Later!









The forsythia is finally blooming here in Vermont and I have it scattered all throughout the house!
























Pin It!

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
