New hanging lights..

Ok so this is my last post today. Woo.. Anyway I decided to change the light covers in my dining room again. I made these out of chicken wire and I've got to say I love the way they turned out. I might even keep them for awhile. Lol

A new feature wall and a painted pumpkin..

So I get bored pretty easily. I decided to make a knew feature wall. This is all stuff that I already had. Some of it just got new paint jobs or a new home. I love all of the new colors. Also take a look at my plaid pumpkin isn't it the cutest? I painted it with with DIY chalk paint and striped it with orange and blue. It turned out so cute. Have a great weekend everyone.

Remember This...

You probably don't remember this old barn wood gate that I picked up what seems a million years ago. Well it's been in my attic since then just waiting to be made into something. Well if finally happened. I made it into a box for my decorations. I used the three pieces for the bottom and the sides and I used left over fence scraps for the ends. I knew there was a reason I kept those things. I nailed everything because its so old I didn't want it to fall apart. I sanded it down some and gave it a quick dry paint job. It's pretty long, almost taking up the length of my table but I love it. Also here are some of my fall decorations. Enjoy.

The Fifty Cent Table..

Not to be confused with the 50 Cent. Lol. So the Annual Apple and Pork Fall Festival has passed and I did pretty good for my first time. I learned a lot and met some new people. One of those is a young girl named Ashely. She works at the place were I had my booth set up. I made some chicken wire memo frames and she liked them but wanted one in purple. Well I didn't even think to make them in purple so I told her that I could definitely make her one. Well we got to talking and she told me about this cute little table she had bought at a rummage sale for 50 cents. That's right.. She absolutely loved the cute little shape of it but didn't know what to do with it so she asked if I would redo it for her. Well of course I said yes. She said her apartment was full of color and and she was fine with whatever I did to it. So here it is. All painted, stenciled and waxed. I hope she likes it. It's the first time I've done a stencil but I think it goes so well with the shape of the table.
