Hey friends! Today is a happy day because it’s Saturday, am I right? I wanted to pop in today to share my rustic glam Valentines Day mantle with you! Did you catch the DIY glitter heart I made and shared earlier this week? I am so smitten over it! And it plays very nicely with my mantle, which is a good thing because both of them are in my living room. This gold glittery love banner I found at the Target dollar spot is the star of the show on this Valentines Day mantle. Let’s not mistake that!
I wish I could share a link with you for this particular banner, because I love it so much. But usually when I find something at the Dollar spot at Target, I don’t find it online. If you don’t frequent the dollar spot at Target, trust me you should! I always find something here that is really cute, and so affordable! I love the gold glittery letters that say LOVE- so perfect for a Valentines Day mantle.
If you are new to Sweet Parrish Place, welcome! I’m so happy to have you! In case this is your first time seeing my mantle, it is from an old barn beam, and my husband had it made for me for Christmas a couple of years ago, and thus began the transformation of this fireplace, which was nothing but a black box in the wall when we moved here. This fireplace completely changed the look and feel of our living room, and I love to decorate it for all seasons of the year. This spot is the place where I start to decorate every time I decide to switch things up. The Airstone you see surrounding the fireplace is another DIY project. I decided to keep out a couple of small green trees that were part of our Christmas decor, and so I used them on the mantle for winter. And by the way, this is also my winter mantle, I only added the banner and the heart hurricane for this rustic glam Valentines Day mantle.
The green milk can was in my home when I was growing up, and not long ago, I asked my mother if they still had it. And luckily they did, so my dad dug it out of the attic for me. My mom painted it and added that giant eagle many moons ago, and so far I haven’t had the heart to change it, but I think eventually I will paint it and give it an updated look. I am very happy to have it though. My little stack of vintage suitcases are my favorite!
When I took down all of our Christmas decor, I was longing for simplicity and a more neutral look. And I think I achieved that with my rustic glam Valentines Day mantle. The glass hurricanes on either side were there at Christmas too. I just changed the pillar candles to white. The black and white stripes on them are ribbons that I wrapped around them myself.
I picked up the glass cylinder vase on a recent trip to Walmart- can you see the gold heart on it? I just checked online, and it is sold only in stores.
Can I just say that I am in love with this blush pink velvet pillow cover? I actually have two of them, and they go on our sofa, but let’s face it, the only time the pillows are neatly arranged on our sofa is when I just cleaned, or we are having company. the rest of the time they are elsewhere because the puppy won’t leave them alone. I have a large box that some of my husbands work materials were delivered in, and it usually sits right in front of this fireplace. It is filled with all things I don’t want the dog to ruin. I long for the days that he grows out of chewing everything in sight!
If you like it, then you wanna put a pin on it!
