{ Cottage Style Cozy Neutral Christmas Mantel }

I've been so excited to get this post out!!!! I wanted to share our cozy rustic Christmas fireplace mantel with you guys because, 1- I painted the mantel box white which I love, & 2 because our Holiday Home Tour will be live soon I wanted to give you a sneak peek! This year really has been flying by & life has been super busy..I went extremely simple & neutral this year with just simple pops of greens, whites & to add a bit of elegance some pops of simple gold bulbs! I used basically everything I had, with the exception of some simple new thrifty & vintage pieces to complete this space! What I love the most is that this space is so simple that just about anyone could recreate it for close to nothing! The cozy feel is exactly what I was going for, with that pop of festive charm! Enough rambling..Come see this space below!!!

This tray was a DIY that I was meaning to blog, but never got the time to. I love the white wash chalk paint paired with the white fireplace & the gold bulbs I set on it! The bulbs are from +Walmart  I added some simple pinecone candles & a mini Christmas tree & done! Super simple & cozy!



I was looking for some super affordable pillows , but wasn't having any luck until shopping with my sister one night! I got this two pair of really nice quality " Peace & Joy" from +Walmart  for $10!!!!!



The skis are vintage & add so much dimension & height to this space! I love how they lay against the vintage doors next to the TV!


These rustic frosted trees are from +Hobby Lobby !



Another free vintage item is this rusted out little metal toolbox!! I spotted it at my grams & had to "borrow" it! I just filled it with some lit garland & another easy element was added effortlessly!




I love how the baskets under the table from +HomeGoods  & the one behind the wreath & the blanket basket tie everything together!



The vintage skates are my favorite!! They add so much charm & character along with the vintage candlestick holder! 

I really hope this space gave you some inspiration to decorate this season! I hope going simple & thrifty also gives you some ideas, because honestly practical & thrifty is what TQS is all about!  What's your favorite item to decorate with?

Happy Wednesday!!

P.S. Don't forget to check back tomorrow for another Christmas room post & our FULL HOLIDAY HOME TOUR COMING SOON!
