I like to decorate for Fall and then around the 1st of October, I re-arrange/put away some of my decor and transition it into Halloween. Today I thought I’d share with you how I decorated my kitchen & nook area for Fall.

I found these little harvest corn cobs from the dollar tree!






I love having this chalkboard in the kitchen. I decorate it just about every holiday!





I found a big bag of these acorns at a “market days” event and I always incorporate them somewhere during Fall.

Entry Table Styling & Lamp Makeover

Hello friends! It’s been so long since my last post and I have to tell ya, I’m missing ya! I’ve been babysitting, working on a few home projects, and enjoying my summer…I hope you all are enjoying yours as well!

Today I wanted to share my entry table styling and lamp mini makeover. I’ve never talked about how I put together this area so I thought I’d show you.


This is the table I have in our entry way and there is a large rectangular mirror hanging above. I painted and weathered the mirror myself from an old dresser we no longer wanted.



I love thrifting and found this cute little sign and wreath holder one day at a Goodwill store. About a year ago, I found this gorgeous cracked glass vase at Hobby Lobby that catches the sun light just right! It’s always been in my living room under a table collecting dust so I decided to move it here. I used tree branches I found bundled up on the side of the road that someone was throwing away for a filler. The Acai wood bowl was a gift basket from a previous employer that i saved over the years and just added some pretty wood chip decorative balls to fill it up and give it some height.




My lamp “before” and “after”.  This turquoise lamp was about as bright as the vase and I felt like they were competing with each other. For me, it was too much turquoise. I was about to throw it out and I thought I’d try painting it first. I gave it a grey wash and then went back over it with a bit of white to give it more of a stone look. I just love how it turned out and I’m glad I didn’t get rid of it! It’s much more neutral now.





One thing I like to incorporate into my decor are things that have a story behind them or some sort of sentimental value to them.


This basket here is filled with a few of my spouses treasures…the first 2 bucks he ever shot as a teen and a rattlesnake he crossed paths with last year!

It’s fun having family & friends over and sharing stories about how we came about these things.



Here atop this vintage suitcase sits a pair of horseshoes I saved from a cousins quincenera that my baby girl got to be a part of.




Here’s the full view of the table and decor.

Hope you enjoyed checking out this little space in our home. As always, thanks for stopping by!
