A Few Quick Fixes

I put it off as long as I could but I have started my Halloween  Fall decorating.  
I really love decorating for Halloween, but I am trying not to make it too Halloween-y until at least this weekend (at least on the out side of the house, that is).


One small problem... my wreath was a little too Halloween, so I took off the little skeletons and stuck in a little fall sprig.  Problem solved.  The other quick fix was the door mat.  I really liked my door mat, but it had gotten kinda faded looking.  I have been looking for a new one and can't seem to find one where I like the look and the price of it.  So I grabbed a thing of spray paint and sprayed it black.  I looks so much better.




Happy Fall

  5. @TerriThanks! Then we built the house I just told the builder I wanted a black door and that is the door I got. Well I picked the door out too. I have no idea what kind of paint it is sorry.

  6. Hi Laura, love your blog! Just like aimee's comment, we don't really do alotofseasonal decorating in Australia either, though I could be tempted. One question about painting your rug ... Is the paint coming off at all as you use it? I have never thought to do soothing like that, but it makes sense!
    Thanks for all your great ideas!
