I spent this early morning scouring Pinterest for ideas for my mantel. It is a most infuriating spot.
It is only 6 1/2 inches deep but more annoying is the hole.
|Painting covers "THE HOLE"|
I have a large painting in front of this abomination. It was for the purpose of housing a TV. Yuk!
I can't just drywall over it because it houses the wireless internet connection for the house and several electrical outlets.
The whole mess makes it difficult to "dress".
So here is a taste of what I found on Pinterest.
I prefer symmetry in formal settings but my mantel is in a casual space.
I am drawn towards feminine collections and pretty things but that just wouldn't suit my space.
A collection of oddities seems more appropriate.

No guts, no glory. The mantel above gets my vote for most creative and I really love it.
Here are a few more.
I am open to suggestions.
I should also add that the ceiling above my goofy mantel is angled, 9 feet high on the left and 18 feet to the right.
