We are having a Halloween party this year and before I get to all the house cleaning and yard work, well I had to make a few decorations! With these upcycled pumpkins I am calling the front display complete. And I am out of excuses for postponing my other chores.
I had an idea for a custom wall sconce. Found Some metal wall sconces in the closet that originally had metal candle holders that hung from them. I wanted to use them on boards that were done to match headboard I made previously and hang lanterns that I purchased at gift department of local pharmacy.
This pallet wood pumpkin project was so easy to do from start to finish. It started with the last pallet wood I had disassembled last year. Then I scavenged from the kids craft paint stash. Some dry brushing the paint on and swiping it off and it was done in time for the little trick or treatsters.

I got this beauty for a STEAL at a garage sale! Any guesses on the price? And, when I took it home I tried to brainstorm how I would make it even better, but couldn't come up with anything. It was gorgeous just the way it was!
Now, it was very dirty and the legs were all rusty, so it got a little cleaning, but, you guys, that is it!...
Our solid wood table is old and has been very well used, it was like that when we bought it on Craigslist about 7 years ago. When we bought it, we had the intention of refinishing it. It's seven years later and I still have not done that. I'm going to try and get it done soon because this trick I use to remove these white heat marks is starting not to work as well as they have been in the past.Here's another table I refinished and I'm thinking this one will get just about the same treatment.

My husband brought home this one at a great price from Bargain Outlet.After 7 years of sun rays beating down on it, the canvas had had enough, and the material finally split.
My wife and I loved the other project we did ( This one) that I decided to expend it to other parts of the kitchen!
