Debbiedoo's: Thrift store chair started the Fall decor door area!


Diy, thrifty home decor decorating ideas on a budget. Painting furniture, stenciling projects. Turning trash to treasure.

Thrift store chair started the Fall decor door area!

More Fall decor,
 this time near the door. I feel like Dr. Seuss!
Near the house?, on the house?, no it is not a mouse, you must come and see!
It started with this little $8.00 thrift store chair I scored at our local humane society.  I have told you before I love checking them out at least once a month.

I loved the little size of it, and I knew it was a sturdy solid wood chair.
Had potential, but exactly what was I going to do?

So with this chair, I have created an entire Fall vignette outside our mudroom.

I painted it with my little itty bit left  of ASCP Arles color.

Did some light weathering....

Added a few pumpkins,cabbage plant, and a little hay for the Fall effect.

Notice I have wrapped some burlap around the plant?
 Last of the burlap too.
Debbiedoo's supplies of paint and burlap are officially GONE!
(insert sad face____:(

I don't think I have anything more to paint at this point...unless I move onto humans!

My first little green pumpkin..what a cutie!

Even my cross got a little light makeover with some ASCP Old white...

And there you have my mudroom outdoor door decor and more.
 The Fall decor door party over at Rhoda's
Happy Fall!

Thanks for stopping by
 and as always your time and sweet comments.

Debbie, that is an adorable chair and I am crazy about yellow anyways. I love the green pumpkin but cannot have any more. Maybe you can paint some faces at a fall festival??? hugs♥O

I just LOVE how cute this vignette is outside your door! The country style chair with that yellow paint on it along with all the Fall goodies is adorable. Your're lucky to have another spot like that to decorate. I just have my front porch area. I've always wanted a side entrance like that. I especially like that green pumpkin! I need to get one of those this year.

This is a funny post, Debbie! You wouldn't paint humans, would you??!!

Love your entry way...the chair is precious. I love buying up old chairs when I can to hold plants or books, I was on a real craze a few years ago and hubby could not imagine why! lol!

Love everything, Debbie!
