More Fall Stuff & a chest of drawers redo

Well, I guess it is obvious  that I love, love, love Fall!  Yesterday, I was taking a walk in my neighborhood and saw all the beautiful vegetation changing colors.  So pretty!  So, I decided to pick some random wildflower/weed type plants and some tree branches with changing leaves.  I put them all together and here they are- a beautiful Fall bouquet!

I got some additional branches and placed them throughout my living room.  These are really pretty.  My hubby actually got these for me.  If you look close you can see the little red berries on this one. 

Now, for my project.  Notice this chest below, this is the only before pic I have.  I forgot to take a before pic.  But, anyway, it was brown.  Yesterday, I decided to change that.

I had some blue paint out in the garage.  So I painted it and then took some fine sandpaper and roughed it up.  It took less than an hour to finish.  I love it.  My house, overall, has a coastal feel.  So, I thought this works better than the brown. 

Until next time.  :)


  1. I love the chest! That is a really pretty color of blue

  2. Thanks, Jessica! I am so glad I did it! I just love old things. If it is not already old, I try to make it look that way. Plus, when you have two boys, it is a great look to have. That way, they can't hurt anything. If they do, it just looks better! :)

  3. Love the natural things you gathered! Such beautiful colors - I've been out gathering too! But, I have to be careful with that pretty yellow stuff (goldenrods) - all my family is allergic to it! I had to use it outside in a planter.
