Painted Pallet Christmas Mantle


 Wasn’t that a fun party over @ Lettered Cottage? 

Here is our mantle ( please don’t look at the unpainted trim..we are in the middle of repainting all the trim in the entire house!) but how much lighter

does it look?:)

We are loving the transformation in just two short weeks.

We cut off tops of spruce trees for the charlie brown trees and plopped them right down in lanterns that

we already had.

 Here I landed myself about 30 pallets and Nik & I painted & used the sawszall  Isaiah 9:6.

 Most mornings I begin my day by reading Jesus Calling .. sitting right in that chair under the twinkling

Christmas tree lights…God and I talk.

Isaiah 9:6

was December’s verse and I knew that was the one.

He has made Himself known to me in all those names over the last months.

::PEACE Himself is now in this HOME:: 

Dakota & Grace’s Nana gave me an heirloom quilt that I use on my bed and now that I repainted my bedroom – the quilt does not

go.  Closing my eyes as I say this…I decided to make Christmas stockings.  Open eyes..are you still there?:)

Now, the family heirloom quilt has morphed into

 ::Family Heirloom Stockings::

I have 4 made…8 more to go! I’m making the grandbabies a little different.

At the Christmas Craft linky party I am going to share a tutorial with you on the Quilt Stockings.

We added some whisk lights aka Grace’s word for some twinkle.

We haven’t taken the logs out of the fireplace yet.

We all laughed last night when Reed ( my grandson) told us that bunnies lived in the fireplace.

You could see where a 4 year old might believe that!

I’m sure those logs are at least 15 years old!

I can’t bring myself to brave that territory yet.

Well girlies - I tried to be quick because I know you have lots of mantles to visit.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will see you back for the Christmas Craft party over @ Kate’s .

Kristine - I kept looking around to see if I had linked to the Country Living Site somehow…I LOVE YOUR ROOM!!! I want to copy your pallet painting. It is scrumptious. I love it all. I talk to God too…sometimes I am just not still enough to hear what he says back. hmmmm. I'm gonna stick around for a while and see what else you've got…hope you don't mind!

Lauren @SummitStreet - I absolutely LOVE that verse & it looks amazing on the pallet. I just linked up my mantel/shelf to Home for the Holidays too… but I need some advice — would love for you to check it out & let me know what you think :)

Your mantel is just beautiful, gorgeous pics too!! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Shelley @ farmhouse - I love, love, love your pallet sign!!! And the stockings are great!! That would be hard to cut up the quilt, but you repurposed it into something you can use for years to come!! I love the numbers hanging on the stockings!!

Hope you will have time to stop by my house/blog for a little visit.

Have a great day and Merry Christmas!!

Katie - Your decorating is perfect for my home. I want to copy it right now! (I hope you don't mind). Wish me luck.

Michelle @ Ten June - Absolutely love the sign and the vintage-y stockings. Great job! Thanks for linking up : )

Jennifer - So the "family heirloom stockings" have to be the best ides ever! I have several old family quilts that have seen better days (and tell many stories). I must remember this. Your mantle is so pretty; the pallet made a beautiful focal point.

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Jaime @ Queen of the - Well, I found my seat. I could get lost in that chair, in that room, just how it is – seriously. I love these linky parties. How could there be one ugly home in America, with all of these beautiful links?! I am so glad I stopped by your blog. Off to take a look around!
