Today I am sharing some more photos of our home decorated for Fall, this time in our kitchen and family room.
The open kitchen shelves have a pair of pumpkin soup tureens added to the vintage scale, ironstone and vintage Crown canning jars. Orange is not a colour I use in our home except for small amounts of orange in seasonal décor.
The plaid flannel quilt and pillow are pieces I sewed a few years ago. I love how soft the flannel feels. The plaid and sherpa throw on the chair is temporary.
On the ruffled slip covered ottoman I added a tray with a faux berry wreath, ceramic and metal Cinderella pumpkin and a lantern.
This is the before of the solid pine tray that I picked up at a garage sale.
I painted it using leftover pale green for the base colour and white for the top coat. A light distressing, wax and in no time a whole new look for $2.
On the armoire between the kitchen patio doors and the family room windows I added a wheat sheaf and pinecones for some natural texture.
The vintage galvanized watering can, sap buckets and large green bottle are favourite pieces and I like how they add some interest and height to this cathedral ceiling area. I'm still searching for new drapes (or fabric to make drapes) since the white matching pair on the patio doors were too faded to rehang.
I placed a scented pumpkin spice candle with berry and star candle ring on the battered wood drop leaf table that we are using as a computer desk. Our (Canadian) Thanksgiving was this past Monday and with 21 family members for dinner it was a loud and fun celebration. This weekend will be a much easier pace and I hope to get some Halloween decorating done.
I'm linking up to the following parties...
