I found something to fill in that open space I talked about here
Paula and I ran to The Wood Connection to get our cute SPRING letters for our 1,000,000 Views Giveaway and I looked around to find something fun to fill in the area below my TV. They have SO many cute things but I am working with very limited space, mostly height and a lot of them were too tall for where I wanted to put them. Then literally as we were checking out I found this cute set!
This is one of their Shadow Box sets. Aren’t they adorable?
I bought them naked and was able to paint them how I wanted.
The cute little hat got a green glittered shamrock (included in the set), a damask print top and black glittered brim. I used a piece of black trim to separate the top from the brim.
The Shamrock got a coat of green paint and the front was covered in glitter and then tied with a black ribbon. I used Mod Podge over the top of the paint and then dumped the glitter on top and once it was mostly dry I shook off the excess. I then used a clear spray to seal the glitter.
The Leprechaun shoes make me happy. I painted the sides and back of the socks green and then used rainbow chevron paper for the socks. I used black paint and glitter for the shoes and gold paint and glitter for the buckles. I then tied some ribbon around the tops of the shoes.
For my pot of gold I painted the whole pot black and the gold, gold. My children insisted that the top and sides also needed glitter so the whole top (except for the back) got a layer of gold glitter. I used 3 gold gems at the bottom of the pot to look like pieces of gold falling.
I put all the pieces on top of a white piece of trim that we had left over from the closet makeover. I didn’t attach them to the piece of trim because I wanted them to be easy to store and because if I ever decide to paint my mantle I won’t need the piece of trim, I was just afraid the black decorations on top of the black mantle would be boring.
I think they turned out adorable and am excited with the finished look of my mantle now.
I hope you like it! Have a great day.
