Always One to Accessorize

Accessories can be added to any bland surface to spice things up!

When we first moved into our house, our fireplace mantel was a little blah. It had an empty section that was crying out for some embellishment. I didn't have an answer, until I was shopping in a local craft store and came upon this really cool decorative wood accent made out of balsa wood. They are meant to be used on picture frames, etc. However, it was the perfect size for our mantelpiece. 

With some installation help from my partner (he wielded the glue gun, I painted), it was a beautiful change for only $6!! Hint: Because of the small delicate design, I used an artist brush to enable me to get into the little nooks and cranies.
