Show Us Your Life - Mantles

My mantle isn't really anything spectacular...it's functional.  Which I like. 

I loved the cut-out for the TV from the minute I saw it.  It lets us have more room in the living room that isn't taken up by a TV!  I do wish we had more of a traditional "mantle" that you could actually put things on though.




Our DVD player, satellite box, DVD's (that we rarely watch honestly), and Wii games sit under the TV.


I included our fireplace too, since our mantle is kind of boring.  I found this screen on clearance at Kirkland's of all places!  I would have bought it at full price I loved it so much. :)


The pots came from Kirkland's too, and the plants in them are from Michael's.


Here's a shot of the mantle from Christmas last year.  I'm so excited to add one more stocking this year!  I've been working on cross-stitched stocking for us for forever...they will get done one day.  I mean it. :)
