I showed you a few of my small upcycles for fall last week and this week I have painted a couple of furniture pieces and added the look, feel, and smell of fall to our downstairs area. Although a lot of fun, it has also been a lot of work as well. Busy little fall bee, that’s me. 🙂

So let’s begin in my entryway. Do you remember this table? It was a rustic solid wood before I got a hold of it with some yellow paint.  This was that table last fall.

And here is that same table this year.

Summer to Fall

I used furniture restorer on the top. I did not have to re-stain it. The furniture restorer brought the wood back to life.  I used cherry color. You can get Furniture Restore A Finish here.

From Summer to Fall

As I’ve said before, the dining room is my favorite room in the house. I’m not sure why, but I know I just feel good when I’m in it or when I pass it. Weird huh? Well because it’s my favorite room, it is usually the first room I refresh every season.

Summer to FallThis year I kept it simple but colorful. If you peek behind the Indian Corn and the pumpkin you will see my yellow summer curtains were still up when I began. That’s because I really did not want to take them down. But once all of the fall stuff was up I decided to take them down until next year and perhaps reuse them next year.

I love Indian Corn. Oh, and both the marble-filled cupcake plate and mason jar are upcycles of mine. I think the mason jar could use some candy corn, don’t you?

As you can see the change in curtains do make a huge difference.  I decided not to go back to the beige sheers. I left the white ones up and I like the combination. Do you?

Fall Yall

Isn’t it funny how I always gravitate towards the same colors? The bunny runner was for spring and summer and the pumpkin is the one I chose for fall. The same colors. 🙂 But I love them both and will reuse them I am sure.

I wish the lighting was better so you could really see the colors in these place settings. The chargers are a gorgeous color between rust and burgundy and the colors in the small plates Summer to Fallcompliment them perfectly. The yellow plates are a perfect contrast as well. I bought the chargers and small plates at Pier 1. Can you believe the chargers were marked down to $2.99 and there was 30% off of that? The sales people were buying these in all colors for themselves and as Holiday gifts.

This Give Thanks tray is another of my upcycles.

Finally, I tied the silverware and napkin with ribbon. Simple but effective. Stay tuned for the hallway, living room, and kitchen. I’ve added a bit of fall to each little space. The painted yellow table above was just a peek-a-boo. 🙂
