I have joined with 6 other talented bloggers whom I have gotten to know and love for a No Place like Home Tour. I am so thankful to have been able to attend the Haven conference in Atlanta this year because I have formed 7 lasting friendships with these girls. I consider it a blessing because we have so much in common, and I have discovered that I can count on them!
I have decided to change things up this year, and instead of a rustic fall decor, I am using more neutrals and metallics. I really enjoy changing things up every year so I try to upcycle and repurpose as much of my decor as possible. My home is not the fanciest home, and my home is decorated on a budget. I only purchase what I have cash to buy and that is the reason that you see many DIY items and thrifted items. Welcome to my repurposed and upcycled home. I hope you enjoy the tours we have for you. Happy Fall Yall!!
My husband and I went shopping for front porch decor and while we were out I was drawn to gold painted sticks to place in my urns, but after I put them in my cart, I realized that I could just spray paint some sticks from my yard. I spray painted 2 branches white and 2 branches gold. I tied a burlap bow to the urns and I am pleased with the look. The wreath is spray painted dollar store items and an old frame. You can see the directions here.
In my foyer, I used a thrift store arrangement with some thrifted pumpkins. I think the arrangement was probably a bridesmaids bouquet. Anyway, I thought it was pretty!
We have a magazine camera crew coming to our house in October to film us doing a DIY project so I decorated with things that would be easy to remove. I used some old pumpkins, some DIY pumpkins, and a couple of new pumpkins that I found at Hobby Lobby. My husband for the large lantern at Bargin Hunt for $9 and I was so excited when he brought it home. Great job, hubby!
I pulled my ceramic owls off my back porch to add to my fall mantle because I see owls are everywhere when shopping for fall decor. I found these birds at ZGallerie on clearance last year. I love that they add color to my fall mantle.
I made these faux galvanized pumpkins from dollar store pumpkins and added them into my lantern. The instructions are in this post.
I found these glass pumpkins at Hobby Lobby, and I think they look beautiful on my coffee table.
I purchased this Thankful and Blessed canvas at HomeGoods, and I plan to keep it up all year because that is the way I feel. The Lord has blessed me so much, and I am so thankful.
I looked everywhere for some fall pillows with the color teal in them. I could not find any that wasn’t too expensive so I made these from $3 hand towels, a cut up old pillow that was in my pile of stuff to donate, and I put them together easily with Stitch Witch fabric glue. No sew is the way to go, and it’s fabric glue for the win! You can see how I made these here.
This is my thrifted fall tablescape. Everything has been purchased from the thrift store. I could not believe I found this huge dough bowl there. Who would give that away? My thrifted pumpkins fit in it perfectly! I always bring branches and leaves from outside to use as fillers in my decor. I think it looks so much better that store bought greenery even if I have to change it out once or twice.
I made these DIY fall cloches from cheese ball trays, an old clock, and a candlestick. You can see the post for the directions here.
I hope that you enjoyed my No Place Like Home Fall Tour! Check out the other lovely homes from my friends, and Happy Fall Yall!!
