Happy Day, Everyone!
Welcome to day three of my Halloween house tour. Today I am sharing one of my new favorite spaces to decorate. It is a corner of our mudroom, which until this summer, housed a large, unattractive basket full of hats and mittens. I found a terrific little dresser at a shop in my neighborhood, and used it to spiffy up that eyesore.
This is a photo of my mom and my aunt, circa 1938. I Photo Shopped jack o lantern heads onto their little bodies, and added top hats. I think it is adorable. I haven't showed it to them yet, but I'm pretty sure they will love it, too. The frame is another thrift store find. I paid 99 cents for it. I covered up the silver marker text that someone else had added to it with black Distress Paint. Then I very lightly dry brushed on Distress paints in Rusty Hinge, Ripe Persimmon, and Wild Honey with a fan brush.
Above the dresser are three of my recent altered art pieces:
You might remember them from earlier posts. All of these frames are from the local thrift store.
That's it for today!
I will be back with one more installment of the house tour, in which I will showcase my mantel. I may be adding one more item to it between now and then, if I can fit it in. I have roughly ten different projects on my desktop ready to be cut and assembled.
Until next time, I wish you a very happy weekend!
