I decided to switch gears and show the Kitchen before the Foyer tour. A little change is good right? This is the heart of our home.
I kept my Hydrangea in my antique olive bucket and added a wire basket from Home Goods I’ve had with faux pears I purchased from Pottery Barn many moons ago, love the colors.
I then decided to add my acorn wreath from Décor Steals. Love it, remember when they sold these? I kept the fabrics the same.
I don’t remember if I have ever shown this cabinet door transfer I made from an old cabinet door that was from the other house. This turned out great and adds whimsy to this vignette.
For the table this year, I used my wooden reclaimed bowl from Décor Steals, these were a great deal a couple of years back. I use the two of them for fall and Christmas vignettes on our tables.
The pedestal you see with my large white pumpkin is from Edith and Evelyn’s Esty shop. Cindy has beautify items with such flair. I used this for the center and placed burlap leave stems from Michael’s along with acorn branches I purchased from Save on Crafts.
I had these small pumpkins which are beaded for years. They used to be orange but I wanted to change them to flow with my décor more. I forgot to take a before picture, these were a little tricky.
You may wonder why these were tricky? Well, they are beaded and paint doesn’t adhere well to beads. What saved this was good old ASCP chalk paint of course, in Old Ochre. I’m telling you, so far, I have found this paint takes to anything. I got a little paint on the stems but sanded a bit to give it a rustic look and they look pretty.
You may have noticed the kitchen chairs are different, more on that in another post. Remember the ones I was going to paint, well I didn’t, LOL.
The small asparagus pitcher you see I purchased at Home Goods one day. It was cute and $3.00, there was NO way that wasn’t coming home. Added are two picks from Michael’s.
I don’t know if you remember the small white table I have under these items? Well, if you take a close look at these photos you may notice a difference. Just a peak,will be posting the change very soon.
The vignettes on this table are subtle fall touches with French pieces I have acquired slowly while living here. Exception of this small green bottle, $1.00 from Michael’s and a piece of Hydrangea. A finial and small acorn wreath from Décor Steals.
Notice below the finial a twig with acorns, Audrey picked those for me too. How cool, right? They have all been cleaned and sprayed with Poly to last and preserve.
On the counters I used pieces I already had, my transferware red platter that was a Christmas gift, espresso cups I have with a Pedestal in the corner by the oven from Antique Farmhouse. I incorporated some acorns Audrey got for me along with Hydrangea buds I had left. The Mercury Glass pumpkin you see is from Pottery Barn I purchased many years back.
Love my little pig, I removed the bow after this was taken.
The small chalkboard I purchased from Save on Crafts and my dad drew the pretty pumpkin for me, Thanks Dad!
I switched my cooking utensils from a French flower transfer pot to this pewter pitcher that was my moms. Love the look I achieved and I hope you enjoyed the Kitchen Tour for Fall 2015. The days are flying by I can’t believe how fast!
