A Fresh And Easy Spring Mantel And Hearth || Worthing Court

Sometimes, I like to go over the top when decorating my mantel and hearth – especially for fall and Christmas.  But, after the excesses of Christmas, I’m ready to calm things down for the winter and then create a fresh new look for spring.   Even better if my spring mantel will be able to carry me all the way through the summer!  😀

Since our family room is so open to our kitchen and breakfast area, I decided to use the same color scheme on my fireplace that I used on the open shelves in my breakfast area this spring – mainly black, white and green.

I get inspired by the craziest things sometimes.  See that black metal piece on the mantel with the glass bottles in it?  I don’t know what it’s original use was, but I picked that thing up at a thrift store and knew right away what I would do with it!  Thus began the hunt for clear glass bottles that would fit in the middle, between the pieces of metal.  Luckily I found some at the same thrift store and picked up quite a few more on clearance at a retail store.

I still kept my shutters and hanging wood/metal architectural piece to use for the backdrop.  Click HERE for a link to where I purchased the architectural piece.

I opened up the glass fireplace doors for the photos because they have so much reflection in them.  But, that left me with a big ole black hole, which I chose to partially cover with a faux boxwood wreath.  Too many wreaths, you think???  I kind of like the look and may rehang the wreath once I close the doors up again.

I picked up a few vintage spindles at a local barn sale recently and used them to fill a basket on one end of the hearth.

On the other end of the hearth, I brought in one of the wire lanterns that I had been using in the planters on my front porch.

Now that I’ve completed my spring decorating, I’m ready for the temps to get just a little bit warmer!  How about you?
