Friday's Summer Showoff...

It's Friday and that means... SUMMER SHOW OFF here @ sixty-nine oh! four.
Today's party is all about your summer mantles! I have seen so many beautiful mantles floating around blogland and I cannot to see what you have to share! Grab a button from my sidebar and link up today with your summer mantle posts!
Here is a before and after of our mantle... It needed more of a "white" color scheme to lighten things up for the summer. Our entryway has changed dramatically over the past few months. Take a look...

Here is what our entryway looked like when we first moved in. I loved the red table and I just had to have it. That idea faded really quickly and I wanted more of a shabby look.
So, we did a little rearranging and too this mantle from our bedroom and moved it into the entryway. We slapped up a few frames and let it be. (yuck)
Luckily that did not last long, how hideous was that?? Then, this week I got to work. I spray painted a couple of candle holders, bought some fresh flowers and made 1 trip to Hobby Lobby for a special message. Finally, the mantle has been spruced up and seems a lot more like me!
Now onto the linky party...
link up here ladies & enjoy!
