So, I finally figured out something to hang above our mantel.
(Remember when I didn't know what to do... here?)
Since our last name is Fry I went with a grouping of letter "F"s.
Originally I thought of a piece of artwork or a grouping of vintage mirrors would work nicely
but alas the wall is angled so artwork looked silly & mirrors just reflected the ceiling. So "F"s it is!
Some are from vintage signs, others I bought at various stores & then spray painted...
I still need to work on the interior of the fireplace & the mantel but you get the idea.
(Oh & I realized, "F" is for fireplace too... ha!)
What do you think?
