Staging A Looooong Mantle

By
Home Stager with Redesigned Spaces - Northern Virginia

A recent project of mine was staging a family room where I needed to add interest to a very long mantle and brick wall.   Not only did I need to come up with a solution that was cost effective but I needed accessories that would not get lost on the wall and that would really make this feature stand out instead of being a boring eye sore.  I ended up finding these great vases at Ross Dress For Less, ranging from $5.99 to $12.99 in price and the great art work was found in the clearance section at Home Goods for about $35.00.   In fact I loved the vases so much I went back twice to buy more.

Sandra - I am a vase-o-holic! Can't have enough of them. 

I like the Big Boy chair in the corner!

Sandra, I love how you offset the picture and didn't plunk it in the middle of the vases.  Looks fabulous and I wish I had some of those gorgeous vases.  Betty

Thanks, it was the least expensive alternative I could think of to add some color to the mantle.

I like the look. I once staged a home with a mantle like this against the brick wall and I actually used an old headboard (beautifully carved and shaped) painted in a distress sage green on top the the mantel. I was neat looking.
