Morphed Mantel

Another small change in the living room. 

 I made a small change to my wire bowl candle display on the coffee table.  I was in Pier 1 Imports and saw the beach glass with the reddish/gold accents and grabbed it up because it was just what I wanted to go with the colors in my room.  I changed the candles to update the look too.  
 The rusty red candle and beach glass go perfectly with my pillow accents.

I've been on a quest to organize some storage areas of mine and I ran across this brown glass candlestick that I bought during the holiday season a couple of years ago.  I decided to see if I could use it on the mantel.  I propped one of the deco spheres on top of it and

I started messing with the faux book boxes and the covered marble dish and it finally dawned on me to stand the books up on end instead of stacking them like I had been.

I think an oval tray would be nice under the candlestick with the spheres so I'll be hunting for one of those now!

Morphed mantel!
