Spring is in the air and with it comes our first Pinterest Challenge for the season! Let’s take a look at how to refresh your mantel with spring decor. Who knows, you may even be able to find some tips to spruce up your TV area with some media console spring decor!
REFRESH YOUR MANTEL WITH SPRING DECOR
Today is our first Pinterest Challenge of the spring season!
And I have a confession to make.
What Is a Pinterest Challenge?
Today is Pinterest Challenge day and 15+ bloggers are sharing decor inspiration and projects with you!
The Pinterest Challenge is brought to you by our hostess, Cindy from County Road 407.
Cindy chooses an inspirational photo from Pinterest and/or the Internet and then blogging-buddies get to replicate the decor or project that is pictured, adding our own twist! We have a blast, and we hope you are as inspired as we are!
Cindy, thank you so much for putting this together for us each month! You are just grand! 😉
If you are popping over here from French Ethereal, welcome! Barbara loves all things French and has recently been adding her own style to her new home. She is enjoying every minute of it, too!
And a special welcome to all of the MWA fam, too!
Refreshing Your Media Console Spring Decor?
Let me be honest with you…
Originally, this was SUPPOSED to be all about a refresh for my media console. Then, I realized I didn’t take a good enough look at the inspiration photo and had to switch things up at the last minute!
However, these same spring decor tips and tricks CAN be used on either a media console or mantel. You know how we like double-duty around here!
The Inspiration – Refresh Your Mantel with Spring Decor
So, let me show you our beautiful inspiration photo from Deborah at Hip and Humble Style. On each side of the photo, note the elements that stood out to me.
After taking a closer look at this photo, I found the inspiration was easy for me! You know why? Because I had all the similar elements, except for one, already at MWA!

Easy Steps to Refresh Your Mantel with Spring Elements
Today, I’m going to simply show you how I used the inspiration from Hip and Humble Style for my ‘faux’ mantel (no fireplace means my window bench does double duty).
No fuss, no muss! But so spring-y fresh. And, it definitely rings true of the photo from Deborah’s post, but with my own flair!
Let’s take a look closer!
To the left, instead of black candlesticks, there are black lanterns with candles and a bit of boxwood.
And instead of ivy, I have a little metal pot with more faux boxwood! Have you used boxwood in your home?
Deborah has a large, round mirror in a black frame.
Three ‘starburst’ mirrors in black and silver have been hiding in my stash since I moved into my little loft.
I love the three mirrors lined-up and leaning against the wall. Simple, light, and airy. (And, dang it, just a wee bit ‘off spaced’. #bloggerlife)
Adding a free spring printable next to the pitcher might be pretty, too!
The yellow candles against the black and green are so pretty… and they smell like pear blossoms!
These mirrors make me happy… they have found a home for this spring season!
This spring refresh for a mantel (or a media console) was easy and fun. Do you like the twists to the inspiration this month?
Now, remember, we have 15 more bloggers that are sharing their inspiration today, as well! Next in line is Alexandra from EyeLove Knots! This is Alex’s very first Pinterest Challenge with us, so be sure to hop on over and show her some love!
