Building A Fall Vignette + Video

Hi there! Today I will be sharing my latest fall vignette. As you come in the front door, we have a large Georgian Style staircase. Remember my farmhouse vignette post (below)? Well, I tried to mimic that look, but on the other side of my staircase.
 H E R E   IS  MY   V I D E O
(How To Build A Fall Vignette - You will see me start from scratch and build this pretty, festive Fall Display)
I T E MS * U S E D 
Arched Iron Gate, Wreath, 2 Topiaries, 1 Candle Holder, Ribbon, Raffia, Beaded Lamp, Fall Floral Picks, Fall Garlands, Cloche filled with Fall colored beads, orange lights, and a porcelain chicken.
Decorating should be about having fun while you are being creative, and I had fun creating this vignette.
I found this chicken at Homegoods over the summer. I was trying to make my bird look like she was nesting . 
 My how I love adding these orange lights, it makes everything glow.
The picture below is what my vignette looks like without the glow of orange lights.
 This shot was taken in the afternoon. I love this look....it has fall written all over it. 
Thanks for visiting, hope y'all have a great weekend.
XOXO, ~Liz

My Autumn Front Porch and Video

Welcome to my front porch decorated for Fall. I will be adding fall mums and real pumpkins and gourds, and maybe some corn stalks, but for now, this is what it looks like.
I love Autumn, it's my favorite time of year. I always get excited to decorate my porch every year. Your porch should be welcoming and cheerful and represent your style.
I added vibrant Autumn colors. I wanted the colors to POP! 
 I added orange lights in my garland and around the candle in my lantern.
My porch GLOWS at night, it's so pretty. I will try and do a night video so you can see how pretty these orange lights are.
 If you have pots on the front porch, set a wreath on top of your pot and add a pumpkin.
I got these pillows at Ross last week, perfect for the porch! 
Don't forget to hang a wreath on your door. Fall is the perfect time to add one, if you don't have one already.
Check out my V I D E O below.

DIY Cloches For Fall

Hi Guys, today I would like to share a simple DIY project. Many of us LOVE a pretty cloche, but some are hard to find, while others are super expensive. So, today I'll share a very inexpensive way to make one (or more) of your very own.

V I D E O TUTORIAL B E L O W

All of the items were purchased from Walmart. 
CHEAP. CHEAP. CHEAP.
You'll need: 2 glass plates, 2 glass bowels, 3 glass candle holders, 2 knobs, E6000 Adhesive, and some Rust-Oleum Spray-paint (1 can). I used a Satin finish and the color is Sage. You can get this cheaper at the Dollar Tree as the candle holders were a few dollars more at Walmart, but the plates and bowels, each 99 cents.
This was me playing with the look I wanted prior to painting and using the adhesive.
By the way, Walmart's Autumn *limited edition plates* are beautiful this year....go check it out. 
You can place whatever you want inside the cloche. I'm still playing with ideas and where I will place them, but you get the idea.
Theses cloches were fun to make. I can use these throughout the year, love them. I will be making larger ones soon.
Thanks for visiting and Happy Decorating! 
XOXO ~ Liz

Autumn Table Top Vignette

Hi there! Join me and I'll show you how I decorated a table in my living room for Fall.
Who loves decorating for Fall? I would love to hear what kinds of traditions you celebrate during the fall season and what room you look forward to decorating the most. 
I love those vibrant, warm, autumn colors. 
Layering items and adding texture makes for a more interesting vignette.
Here is the living room at a glance.
Below is a shot of my Autumn Arrangement during the late afternoon.
This shot is around 8:30 at night.

The video below explains where I got certain items, if any of you are interested. ;)
Thanks for visiting! 
XOXO,

My Autumn Mantle And Video

Hi Ladies, today I would like to share my family room mantle decorated for Fall.
So, have you all been struck by the *fall* decorating bug yet? I have! ;)
This is my Autumn mantle. It's messy, imperfect, but I like it that way. I think it adds character, ha!
I used everything I had from previous years, but added the new candle sconces from Ross. 
I added pumpkins and acorns.
My everyday greenery was used as my base, and then I began to layer with my fall floral picks and garlands.
I like adding layers because it adds depth and texture.
I added Curly Willow branches for a rustic element.
I used fall arrangements in metal vases on each end of the mantle to add balance in relation to the TV.
I love these candle sconces and they were so cheap. :)
 The LED lights behind the flat screen (which were off in this photo) cast a beautiful shadowy effect at night onto the fall mix. 
 I love wooden acorns.
 Thanks for visiting and below is a quick video snippet of my fall mantle.
xoxo, ~Liz

Suspended Ladder Project

Happy Wednesday! Today, I would like to share my suspended ladder project. Many of you may recall my "white" hanging ladder many years ago. I would decorate the ladder through the seasons. Well, I really miss it, so I decided to make my very own hanging ladder, just in time for fall.
Where did I get my inspiration for a DIY ladder? I will tell you. Suzy from Worthington Court. She explains with pictures how to make this ladder for under $20.00. She did not hang her ladder, but I did. This is my version - in black. You can paint or stain the wood in any color you like, or leave it completely untouched for a rustic touch.
  It took me 15 minutes to assemble the ladder including measuring my slats, pre-drilling then adding the screws. I wrote down all the dimensions (per Suzy's blog post) and went to Lowes and had them make all the cuts for me. Can you say ~ simple? 
 I did pre-drill the holes because I didn't want the wood to split or crack.
I put the screws in and was done. Seriously, it was just that simple.
 I  then painted the wood starting with the brown paint color as I was unsure what color I wanted to go with. 
This is the ladder painted brow. I didn't sand the wood, as I wanted a rustic look.
 I decided that I wanted the end look to be black - to match my kitchen table and hutch set.
I pre-drilled and placed this hook on all four sides, so I could attach my chain and hang it from the ceiling.
 These are the hooks and chain I purchased.
Adding the chain.
Here is the ladder before adding the hooks and chain.  I could have found several uses for it. I could have leaned it up against a wall and used it as a blanket holder, or a towel holder in a bathroom.
Here my ladder is suspended from the ceiling.
 I had some glass shelves and placed those on top of the ladder so I could set things up there evenly.
 This is the finished look.
Umm, did I forget to mention that I have already started to decorate for fall? *blush* 
I got so into the fall decorating that I decided to make my family a fall meal, Butternut-squash soup with crumbled bacon on top and ciabatta bread for dipping. It was delish!
I've got a super cool project to share that only cost $40.00 and adds the WOW factor to any kitchen. I will be sharing that next, and lots of Autumn decorating, too!
I've got my pumpkin spice candles going and the house is super cozy in Autumn colors, and I'm loving it! Thanks for visiting! 
XOXO, ~Liz
