DIY Show Off Fall Festival #5 (Fall Mantel Inspiration)

HAPPY FALL! It’s official!  I’m celebrating by heading to the Country Living Magazine Fair in Columbus tomorrow morning!  If you’re going, be sure to check out the DIY Club at the Gorilla Glue booth!  Woohoo!  I’d love to meet you and you’ll see our projects featured there!  So exciting!

My favorite mantel maestro has always been Sarah from Pewter & Sage.
