Summertime mantle

I love the decor that goes along with summertime, light and airy interiors filled with coral and all things beachy.  I'm sure you've caught onto the fact now that I love driftwood, coral, seashells, anything nature inspired.  I keep most of these things in my home year round, but really kick it up a notch around this time of year.  

I wanted to spruce up my mantle a little and make it a little more summery without spending a lot of money, so I shopped the house and garage and pulled it together.

I've had this large painting in the garage for a while, I bought it for a steal at Salvation Army a long time ago but just left it sitting until I could figure out what to do with it.  I originally planned to paint over it but thought it fit right in with my beachy decor.

This is one of my favorite finds ever, I found it at Tuesday Morning of all places.  It's a vintage seltzer bottle.  The all metal ones sell online for up to $200!  Guess how much I paid for it?  $12.50, It was marked $25 which I thought was a steal but it rang up $12.50, I took it as a sign and bought the rest of the ones they had in stock. 

seashells gathered on our vacation last year to Oak Island, I've got some DIY plans for these one day...

Happy Weekend!  Hope it's a great one!

I love it! I seriously need to get better about switching up my mantle more often - it's been exactly the same for forever now!

So pretty! I think your ship painting is charming. My shells just came out for the summer. I love decorating for fun and no pressure like for holidays!

Your thrifted painting blends well with your summer decor! It is always a good feeling when you can put something you picked up for an affordable price to good use.
