Fall Display


****Update, this giveaway is over...here is the winner***

Thanks for coming back and checking in on my progress with my Mum's The Word challenge. If you missed the first post, you can go here.

Remember Lowe's has sponsored me to get creative with chrysanthemum's. 
I hate waiting for the reveal...don't you?

Here is what my entry looks like now




That's me in the pink reflecting in the door. Now let me show you how I put this together. 

I had these old baskets in the garage


A little black and white paint and now they look like this


A hollowed out foam pumpkin painted white, on the right.


Then I decided to get a bit more creative. I picked up a stencil with some small interesting shapes


Blue paint, a stencil brush....and now I have this


A Ginger Jar pumpkin. It's that touch of whimsy that makes me smile.


A fresh new doormat


But the one thing...if I had to pick just one....that make's me so happy

Is saying goodbye to this


The transformation of this ugly threshold is here

A few more mum's and pumpkin's, and cabbage, and gourd's, and pepper's...



And my front went from this


To this

SPECTACULAR Linda! Of course you have a lovely entry to start with, my goodness it is gorgeous! Now I have to go get some decor items and spruce mine up. I think Im going to try some HYPERTUFA pots ..first of all I had to find out what that word meant.. so cool and looks so easy to do. I have 5 gallon buckets so I might try 2 big ones! earmarking that DIY
Have a great day, and again, fantastic entry decorating my friend!

Now that's the prettiest porch I've seen. Natural things like mums and kale are so beautiful. Can you share the source for your big pots?

Stacey said...

Happily following. :)

Had to come back and tell you that your stenciled pumpkins are awesome.

If I won that gift card I might try to make the hypertufa planters. Those have always appealed to me.

That's too funny. I thought the black-and-white baskets were laundry baskets! I thought "hey, cool idea! ...but I wonder how she keeps the dirt from falling out..." :)

The Entry mat idea at Lowes creative ideas was perfect for me--I need to do one for my daughter, so good timing and good instructions.

I just saw this on pinterest, and I was wondering--how did your painted threshold hold up during the winter? I'd love to try painting ours. Thanks!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Hi Megan, you don't have an email address in your profile so I could not reply back to you directly. This held up so well that I will be painting the threshold on my back door. Good luck!
