There's no getting around it. We have a big 55 inch TV over the mantel. Everyone is decorating their mantels for fall and there are some gorgeous pictures out there in blogland. I am quite envious. My hubby, the commodore, is proud that he was able to mount this monstrosity over the fireplace. Actually, there is no where else it could go in our open spaced great room. At least not that size. So I'm stuck with having to place objects beside, under and on the floor in order to achieve some decor.
I hope everything doesn't look too crowded on top. Enjoy!
