Ok, we’re on Week 3 of the Shop the House Design Challenge – Fall Edition! I have teamed up with several talented bloggers to challenge ourselves to shop our house and redecorate the same space four weeks in a row and things are starting to get a little more difficult than the first two weeks!
Let’s refresh our first two weeks:
Week One HERE
Week Two HERE
Now onto Week Three and how I’ve changed things up for fall! I kept the tobacco basket and DIY Cotton Wreath but changed out the rest!
I loved my boxwood and pumpkin planter from last year that you can see HERE so I decided to try something similar again this year. I had a larger planter box from the thrift store that had been sitting in my garage for months. I used the Amy Howard plaster on it to give it the white rustic look. I just filled it in with small faux pumpkins (some I had painted last year and some this year). I used a combination of paint and dry brushing techniques on some and then paint and wax on others. I cut a couple stems of greenery from Michaels to wedge in between the pumpkins to break it up some and add a different texture.
On this side I just layered some books with a thrifted pitcher and my pheasant feathers from Hobby Lobby and included an antler from my Dad. I never thought I’d see the day that I was asking my Dad for some of his deer antlers….but it happened last year! Thanks Dad! 🙂
On the other side I used my DIY Wood and Iron Bun Feet Pumpkins on some candlesticks with another antler.
My first two weeks I used my rustic stool with a pillow on top but this week I wanted to change that up. I moved this old chair from our bedroom and put my DIY Magnolia Wreath on the bottom with a wicker-type pumpkin on top. This was a random thought but I ended up loving the wreath under the pumpkin and wondered why I hadn’t thought of that sooner!
That’s all for this week! Which fall decor did you like better? Week two or three? I’d love to hear!
Head on over to see how the other blogs changed up their spaces this week!
