So very disappointed with my new house mantle because my not so DH decided to put the tv above it & now I have no mantle. It is just a useless piece of wood sitting there bc the damn tv is in the way. There was a sound bar there but I got pissy about that and ripped it off one day thinking it would give me some space to use the mantle. I was wrong, the tv still is in the way. The tv dominates the entire room anyway & I have to decorate around it which pisses me off even more. Can you tell I’m not so happy about TVs & decorating around them? DH has done this quite a few times & still has not learned that it just won’t work.
My house doesn’t have a fireplace, but I put a mantle up anyway, just so I can decorate. Above is a mirror that was my grandmother’s, along with her clock. Right now an assortment of candles and small vases-pink, glass and white. I do change seasonally.
Will someone let me know when America is great again? Thanks!
