I’m just finishing up my fall decorating & wanted to share a big kitchen addition. We fixed up this hutch/shelf thing a couple of years ago & it hadn’t found a spot in the new house yet. Originally I wanted to put it in the dining room, but the ceilings are way too tall it looks funny. Plus the rest of the dining room is still totally empty. So I moved into the kitchen a few days ago & I really like it there, especially covered in fall goodness.
Anyway, thought I’d share some photos of it completed!
Here’s the whole picture. I don’t know what my favorite part is. I really love the entire thing. Although, I’ve already added more since taking the photos! You may see the latest & greatest version on Instagram.
Now for some close-ups.
I love the funny looking pumpkins & gourds best, the ones that aren’t plain orange. Michael thinks they’re ugly & strange. He just doesn’t get it.
The candlesticks are from the thrift store. I’ve been completely obsessed with bronze pieces lately & buying them all up! The little beaded bowl was on sale at Target.
I love love love this floral tray I scored years ago at the thrift store. I’ve been waiting to have a house to decorate for Thanksgiving ever since I bought this; the colors are gorgeous for fall. I actually found it’s baby brother at the antique store the other day. Sadly, I left him there.
My great-grandmother (who’s still alive btw) did this wood burning. I like how natural & masculine it is. That’s why I had to add a jar of buttons next to him. He definitely needed some warmth to balance him out.
I have another pair of antlers on my mantle so I carried the look over to the kitchen. That tray came from Walmart long ago & I picked up the pretty, white pear at Target. I waited & waited & waited patiently for those to go on sale. The candles are thrift & antique store scores.
You guys already saw this cornucopia on my Fall Home Tour, but I moved it on over.
I resisted this plate so many times before giving in. I’m totally loving all the Better Homes & Gardens stuff at Walmart though y’all. I mean, isn’t that fox adorable. I’m a big fan of the whole woodland creature thing that’s happening this season.
My friend Shelby gave us that candle as a house-warming gift & the black thing is actually an old, metal, fence post topper. Michael saved a bunch of them for me from his parents shop a couple years ago. He thought I’d do something crafty with them. Too sweet sometimes! He knows I just love junk, especially when it’s a little rusted. 😉 Some tall feathers in an old blue mason jar complete my little cluster. Sidenote- I got that jar for a quarter because it’s a little cracked, love good deals.
I adore old cookbooks & am trying to start a collection of the Southern Living ones. Wouldn’t it be fun to try to recreate one of the old recipes on here every month? New post ideas!!
Pretty baby pumpkins in the glass dome. Oh sweet fall, you make me swoon.
Hope you’ve enjoyed it!
