I thought I would try out a white and silver Fall display. I like to use what I have, and not to buy a lot of stuff that will just go into storage after Fall again. I should have plenty of storage space, but I don't. Hmmm...wonder whose fault that is??? I really am not sure, that is not a rhetorical question. There are 5 people living here, each with their own individual hobby and the junk stuff that goes with it.
Where was I? O yes, the buffet that I transformed a while back. I have never really decided how to decorate it, so when the time came to start decorating for Fall, I decided to do this there:
Let me tell you about this little group:
I got the chicken at Savers a while ago on half off, and the birdies at the Dollar Tree. They were all colored (the cicken and the birds) , so I sprayed them with Heirloom White..now they look more like a respectable bird should look..
The plate was also an earlier Savers buy, and these cutie rub- ons were from the
$1.50 section at Michaels. I saw them and and bought them, and then saw what one of you very clever, crafty bloggers did with them, so, I copied you.
(I have spent the last 90 minutes looking for the inspiration blog, but, no luck in finding it. So, please, if it's you, let me know, I REALLY would like to give you credit. )
Some $ store plastic pumpkins sprayed silver....
Another cloche made from a cheese dome, a ceramic plate, and a candle holder...with little wooden fruit from Goodwill, sprayed silver.
Gorilla Glue is my friend...that's all I have to say about that!
Chalkboard made by painting an old silver tray with black chalkboard paint -
Another Gorilla Glue project....white candlebase glued to a little glass vase.
The frame is from a thrift store. For the inside I just made a little collage with some fall scrap paper, and a picture of my happy daughter ...
And....one last look...
Are ya'll getting in the Fall spirit yet?
Have you done a monochromatic Fall display? I would love to hear about it!
