Our Summer Mantle (via Kirkland's)

Our mantle naturally seems to get a change of decor with the seasons.  I may be a little late with the Summer Mantle, but there's nothing like a gift card to Kirkland's to get your summer decor inspiration on!  (And I'll be excited to announce a GIVEAWAY to Kirkland's opportunity for YOU tomorrow!)

Lucky for us there is a Kirkland's not too far from our house, so after dinner out on Friday, the whole gang headed to Kirkland's for some summer decor.  On Saturday morning, I got busy changing out the Spring mantle for this new summer version.

As soon as I walked in the front door of Kirkland's, I spotted this awesome pale aqua and white chevron vase.  It was on sale for just $29.99!  It set the tone for the entire mantle because I then picked up a package of vase filler cylinders in natural colors to go with it.


I ended up adding a few shells that I spray painted gold, and also added a touch of aqua and light blue spray paint to compliment the colors in the mantle.  


I found the "Peace Love and Sandy Feet" painted block at Barnes & Noble last year.  They have some similar blocks out this year with different sayings.  I bet this would be a pretty easy DIY project. 


The ombre candles are a Michaels find, which perch on top of clear glass candle holders.  


And while I was at Kirkland's picking out these new mantle pieces, I found this adorable pair of pillows with red coral on them.  They are the perfect addition to our living room for the summer.  


Tomorrow I'll be announcing a Kirkland's GIVEAWAY
so come back to enter!

  1. The mantle looks great!! I am definitely going to Kirkland's today to see if they have that vase. And such a great idea spray painting the shells. Can I ask you who you got your curtains from? They are beautiful. Have a good day! - Mary

  16. I love the colors. I seriously never would have though of spray painting sea shells. I think they are so pretty just the way they are, but you made them look great. The colors in your home look so comfortable and inviting.
