Mantel Styling with Eclectic Antique Frames
I recently shared on Instagram about a stash of antique frames I've been hoarding... or collecting... I'll let you decide which one. I made an amazing gallery wall with some of them that you can see in our entryway & decided to play with some of them on the other side of the room as well to reflect that new gallery wall I made earlier this week.
