I had this crazy idea that I wanted to add wood above the fireplace mantel. As you know we moved a few months ago and I have so many projects going on right now, adding one more would probably push Barry over the edge.

While I was in the basement sorting all my treasures, I kept looking at this old gate that I bought several years ago for another project (one that was only in my mind). I had one of those light bulb moments, you know the ones that get your creative wheels turning.

So after carefully measuring everything I began the makeover process, step one was being extra sweet to my non-believing husband. I finally convinced him that I’d drop the wood above the mantel idea if he’d just help me get this gate up there.

His first concern was that it would  not fit. Of course I explained that I knew it would. I could tell that he didn’t think it would look good, once again, I knew it would. He helped me hold it up there and screw it in to a stud. Only minor complaining because I kept raving about how great it looked. You know if you say that enough, he starts believing it too!

It’s the perfect backdrop for any season and it adds so much texture and dimension! Really, I’m not just saying that so that you believe me 😉

I found this perfect coffee cup at HomeGoods the other day, while I was shopping for nothing that I needed. I just thought it was perfect to add to my never ending cup collection.

Ready for spring in our family room!

I mean, doesn’t it just scream spring to you!?

I could sit here all day, actually some days I do…but don’t tell anyone. I guess that’s why I haven’t gotten much done this winter!

I only have one Chirp cup, I hope you don’t mind using something else!

I’ll tell you more about my Spring Mantel 😉

I’m so glad I convinced him to help me with that gate! The spring mantel at Refresh Restyle just wouldn’t be possible without it!

Happy Spring!

    1. Love it, love it, love it!! You’ve got awesome vision, and I know your hubby is glad you convinced him! It adds such awesome texture and the perfect backdrop of all of your fabulous mantelscapes!

    2. Love, love it! My daughter has a very similar gate that she uses on her mantel, and on top of an armoire. It’s so versatile, and fun to use. You did an awesome job!

    3. I’m a believer! It looks great! Very organic looking rather than an installed plank wall version. I love the patina on the wood and the uneven natural look. Your hearth is gorgeous too!
