There are many posts about how to decorate your mantel for the holiday season, but what happens when the holidays have passed? Of course, you want to keep your space looking well-designed long after Santa’s last trace has been left, and that certainly means taking down the tree and the stockings but do you have to change the mantel? We say no!
Have you ever found yourself replacing a hinge or drawer pull that just doesn’t match its weathered counterparts? Perhaps you’ve been wanting to make a rustic coffee table but the screws and hardware you’ll use are just too shiny!
Every room should have accents of metal. You can achieve this by using wrought iron hooks, furniture bases, candlesticks or lighting fixtures, mirrors, etc. Metal accents bring an edge to your design and balance the softness of a sofa, bed or chair. It is the final touch and brings along a finality to the project.
