I am so excited to tease you with what I am working on. I wasn't home all weekend and my time seems to be flying. However, my son, James, got all of my Halloween/Fall stuff down. I am in process of decorating, daycare, and my own kids schedules -- it seems to be taking me forever to get anything done. But, this is how my entryway is shaping up:
I totally fell in love with Janet's window over at Today's Fabulous Finds, go here to see hers. It is awesome and I have been waiting a long to time to re-recreate one for me. I just know I will have a blast decorating it for all of the upcoming holiday's.
Remember these? I used the large one for this project.
I started by removing the glass and picture.
I bought a real thin piece of wood trim about 1 in. wide and rounded edges at the Home Depot. It was really inexpensive for about a 5 ft. long piece.
I measured the width and length (from the inside lip) of the picture frame and cut it with a handsaw.
I painted all the pieces an olive green to match my shelf.
I then took a rag and rubbed an antique white paint until I got the effect I wanted. Then, I added some stain and glued it together.
You can see how I glued it on that inside lip.
I just overlapped it.
Ta Da -- I can't believe mine turned out.
On to my wreath. I bought this grapevine wreath at the thrift store for $1.00. I added cheese cloth (from my lantern project) and spiders. I had spider rings and a couple of larger spiders, from Walmart, to make it match my lantern.
I even did the same bow.
Added some spider webs, crows, and rats (from the Dollar Store).
I am still working on the top of my entryway dresser (below my shelf). I will be showing you the finished product a little later. Until then:
Thanks for stopping by and,
