Sometimes the best ideas are simple.
And this year my fall decorating belongs in the simple category . . .
bringing together all the beauty of fall in an uncomplicated manner.
I adore the warm colors of fall -- but when it comes to my back porch
(which is already a rustic brown), I need to liven things up with a PoP of CoLoR!
And that PoP came from an unexpected purchase . . .
. . . a dusty Bamboo Style Ladder Shelf that wasn't feeling 'the love'.
The previous owner wanted to lose it because her toddler son
couldn't resist using it to practice his climbing skills (owner's picture -- see her cute climber?)
Can you blame him?
So I picked it up, cleaned it up and gave it the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint treatment . . .
in a gorgeous Florence with a dark wax finish.
This ladder shelf was exactly what my porch was looking for . . .
after all, who doesn't need a display piece on their porch?
And I am in love with the color! Running my hands along the finish . . . I seem to hear a sigh of gratitude.
The details are now apparent and the shelves are no longer being climbed . . .
well, perhaps a hungry pest may climb them . . .
. . . in search of that tasty Indian Corn.
But as I see this gorgeous PoP of Color from my screen door as I type this . . .
I know we will be enjoying this piece for a while, and that
I will not be leaving the corn out for any pests that happen to pass by :)
P.S. Do you own a furniture piece that isn't working for you?
Give it new life or sell it to someone who will -- psst . . . I'm in the Dallas / Fort Worth area :)
Thanks so much for stopping in! Hope you are having a Fabulous Day!
