Christmas Decor Front Door

I finally got the front door decorated. I started with 4 pine garland that I doubled side by side by twisting the branches together. Next I then twisted the ends together to make one long garland. I then added one roll of Deco Mesh ribbon in red again laying it on the garland give it little poof then twist the garland branches on the Deco Mesh. I then added the ribbon from Michaels at (50% off) using the same technique I used for the Deco Mesh. Next came the large ornaments purchased from Home Depot and then the Christmas lights. Finished.

Balloon Back Chair

I purchased a Balloon Back chair at an auction months ago for $12.00. It is similar to this one ,I forgot to take a before picture. I sanded it down and painted it with chalk paint then distress and stained it. When we bought it it didn't have a seat in it so we cut one from a piece of pine added foam padding and then covered it. I had this coral fabric I picked up about a year ago for 7 dollars for 2 yards.
The finished product! I love the coral orange color in this fabric!

Coffee Table

The before

I purchased this coffee table at an auction, it had so many scratches on the top, so I sanded it down and restained the top and painted the legs and base chalk paint in antique white. Then I distressed the legs and base a bit and  put a dark wax on it.

The after!
Thanks and have a great day.

Chalk Paint and Barstools

The Before and After
I purchased these barstools at a resale shop last weekend and had an idea what I wanted to paint them. So after stripping and sanding the old finish off, I painted the base a turquoise and stained the seat a dark walnut. I love how it came out, one down and one to go!
Have a great day!

Book Page Wreath

Made this wreath a while back. I was able to get some old books that had been damaged and reused them into the Halloween wreath. Just tear out the pages and make cone shapes. I then cut out a piece of cardboard in a donut shape with a diameter of 16 inches and started hot gluing the cones around the shape then started a second row on top of the first row then a third row on top of that one. I then made a BOO sign that I attached some crepe paper that I ruffled around that and glued it all together.
Then I took a plastic spider I had and glued it on. To hang it I used a binder clip , that clipped to the back of the cardboard and you are ready to hang it up! I know it's early for halloween seeing we are still in summer time.
