I never seem to run out of things to blog about, but I am always short of time to blog. When I have days off work, I tend to blog up a storm. That is the case today with three posts!
For this post of my fall dining table vignette, I have started with that old tiered, wooden tray I purchased earlier this year and repainted white.
Here is the tray as I found it for $2.
The tiered tray also was painted with the dry brush technique, Rustoleum Heirloom White, and slightly distressed.
I added blue and white cups and saucers to the bottom shelf and real mini pumpkins and faux leaves and berries to the top bowl.
The candlesticks were just purchased at a consignment shop for $3. They were stained wood and I gave them the Heirloom White treatment too.
There is a Blue Willow covered dish and a Sadler teapot.
Today, I have framed my fall display photos on Picasa with museum matte for a different effect.
The book was a recent $2 find "Prayers for Girls" by Elisabeth Robinson Scovil, 1957.
I got my inspiration for the combination of blue and white dishes and fall orange from a tablescape done by Yvonne at Stonegable.
It is a pleasing fall combination!
