I pulled the colors from the media wall and my kitchen to create this herringbone wall. It kind of looks black in this picture, but its actually navy. It has such a graphic punch and is one of the first things you see when walking around the corner from my front door.
I also updated my mantle. Sorry I never took pictures of my Christmas mantle to show you. December just seemed to get away from me. I drew a picture on a paper of what I wanted this chalk board to look like and let my 7 year old help draw it. I love it that she's interested in art.
The rest of the mantle is really simple. I didn't want it very busy because of the herringbone. I reused some sheet music garland from Christmas in the giant mason jar and swiped the tulips from my guest bedroom.
I painted the baseboards on this wall so I can cross one of 15 walls of baseboards off my "to paint" list. Slow and steady.
And for the giveaway...
When I was in Alabama, I bought this white enamel bowl. I love the way it looks on my dining table with some fake hydrangeas. It also looks fantastic as a fruit bowl in the kitchen. Lucky for you, there were two of them and I bought the other one to give away to one of my readers!
