Bookcase Top Transformation

We do not have a mantel so I use the top of our bookcase instead.  This is my before and after project for this week.  I have not had the chance to tackle any of the big projects on my list so finishing a little project is always nice in the mean time.

Here is our bookcase/mantel before, not too much going on.

Now here it is after I decorated, using many of the items from the Fall Findings Swap, I shared in the previous post.

Notice that the time has not changed on the clock, I really didn't finish that fast.  Our clock is in need of repair, some day soon I hope.

Pumpkins seem to be the theme

It was fun gathering things and adding a little more to my Fall decor

I added a touch of fall to our front porch too!  I forgot to take before pictures.

We have had a couple of beautiful Fall days,
the sunshine today was just great!

I am linking to Kim's Before and After Party at Savvy Southern Style and Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Through Life.


  1. All your swap things look great on the bookcase. Is the garland metal? I really like it. I would love a little fall weather down here. I guess that's what vacation will be for.

  2. Nice vignettes for the holiday season. Thanks for linking up with me.

  3. I was just working on a mantle switch too. Fun and inspiring.
