One of the hottest trendy items is the deer antlers. Their shapes are like art sculptures and not to mention they’ve come a long way in decor. I was never one to like a deer head poking out of the wall (kinda creepy to me – being a city girl and all) but I always did like the shape of the antlers. The shapes, sizes, color actually gives them quite a decor sex appeal. They’ve become so versatile with decorating your home, and I’ve been wanting some. I’ve been eyeing them for a while, but those trendy items come with large price tag. Here are some examples how you can incorporate them in your decor.
Here, they are used as tie-backs which is fantastic break from the norm!
Take a mirror to another step higher and enhance the frame
If you have 3 antlers, you can create this exquisite light fixture
Or if you like shabby chic, give them a white-wash to create this look.
Grouped together with a touch of metallic paint makes these antlers appear to be hands cradling a candle
Or how about make a beautiful art statement
I absolutely love the garden chandelier created using the antlers here:
And lastly, you can simply have them around for that pop of color (like Moi)
I’ve heard people say “if it’s free – it’s probably not worth having”. Well – that’s not how I see it and it definitely is not a true statement. I got phone call from someone who told me they just cleaned out a house and there was dresser I might like (thanks Maria!). The house had been fire damaged and they were taking all the items out. When I rode up to it, at first glance I didn’t see anything I’d want, but I figured let me get out the car and poke around..low and behold.. BAMBI on a mount was sticking straight up. Perfect timing.. She was stained from the black smoke. But after spending two weeks on the back of the hubby’s truck, the rain washed that away. Bambi didn’t stand a chance.. I want those antlers! My son got a saw and went to town.
I figure they’d make a nice prop piece in my outdoor space.
They were so black I had to give them three coats to cover. But it’s all good.. It’s funny how in this position it looks like a finger snap on two thumbs up! I’ll take a freebie ANYDAY!
