DIY Farmhouse Style Dollar Store Pumpkins

Hi guys! Happy Friday!

I’ve finally busted out the fall decor and pumpkin everything! I was wanting a few more faux pumpkins (because you can never have enough, right) for my mantle and I remembered seeing them at the dollar store a few days ago. They are the brightest shade of orange and I thought maybe I could paint them to match my home décor.

20170915_102539

So that’s exactly what I did!

20170915_133455

I mixed a little of brown and white paint to get the color I was wanting. Then I applied 2 coats with about 10 minutes of drying time in between. I went back and added some dimension with a slightly darker shade in between the segments. After they were completely dry, I added 1 coat of matte varnish to protect the paint from chipping.

20170915_133941-1

20170915_133602

Here they are completely dry with a bit of Spanish moss around the stem!

20170915_140218

I just love the way they came out and they look great up here on my kitchen hutch!

This a fun and inexpensive way to add some fall touches to your home. You can paint them whichever color you like and get pretty creative with these. I hope you enjoy this little project and I’d love to see how you incorporate these into your home decor!

Have a great weekend,

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.

20170718_113840

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.

 

20170718_113631

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.

20170718_113702

 

 

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.

 

 

 

20170718_113753

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.

20170718_113856.jpg

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.

Faux Lake Sign Turned Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Décor

Hi guys! Boy is summer in full effect here…toddler, teenagers, babysitting, & junior all-star baseball practice/tournaments. Whew! Just a few weeks in and I’m exhausted lol!

I was out and about shopping this past weekend at one of my favorite discount stores. I spotted this lake house sign in the clearance area and would you believe it was marked down to .65 cents? I kid you not, I couldn’t believe it either. There was nothing wrong with it so I brought it home with me and figured I’d find somewhere for it.

20170620_103724-1 (2)

 

I planned on a lake house theme for my sons room, but now he no longer wants that…teens, go figure!

So I have this sign and because the price was so low, they cannot take it back.  It got me thinking how else I could use it. I have been wanting a farmhouse sign to hang in my kitchen for sometime and I thought why don’t I just use this and paint over it…so I did!

20170620_134551 (2)

 

I used some basic white craft paint and coated the board about 3 times until everything was covered.

20170620_114406-1

 

After it was dry I used black acrylic craft paint and letter stencils I had on hand for the wording.

20170620_124623

 

I let that dry for about an hour and added a black wash to it for the effect of dirty, weathered wood. (check out how I did it here)

I just love how it turned out and I think it looks great here in my kitchen! Let me know what you guys think!
