We are enjoying our second to last weekend of summer before back to school (and work for me) but I couldn't help pulling out a few items that remind me of Fall.
This little wood tote was $1.49 at a local thrift store and was originally a dark green (sorry, forgot the before pic.) I painted the first layer Antique White craft paint and then pulled out a sample pot of Martha Stewart Sharkey Grey for the top coat ($1 clearance at Home Depot.)
I lightly sanded it in a few spots but kept most of the Sharkey Grey intact, just hinting at the colour below.
For an early Fall vignette I filled it with some vintage crochet doilies, old silver spoons, a cute little cow I have had for years, and some new votive candles for Fall. I always get my votives and candles at A Country Mile in Milton. They have the most delicious scents! The trio of votive holders hold more great smelling candles, and the large pinecone I picked up at our grocery store and use most of the year in displays.
This little vignette is displayed on the turned leg table I shared in our family room office area post. It was quite chipped around the edge so I went ahead and painted it. I will post more details and better photos soon (tonight it is too sunny in our family room.) I hope you had a great weekend. I'm heading over to my sister's home for a visit and some cake.
I'm sharing this with....
