As for decorating, we love that we were able to find the exact sconces we wanted on Wayfair.com. The brass, the fun shape details, everything about these is perfection. When it isn't a holiday, we like to keep our mantel simple and clean. A few antique books held together by a unique bookend set, some vintage mason jars, etc. Mantels can easily get cluttered, so less is best!
We hope you like the look of our DIY mantel! The full tutorial on it is coming soon to Dream Book Design
