Fall Outdoor Decor: a SALVAGE STYLE Event


Holiday & Seasonal Junk Decorating www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
I am so pleased to be a part of a great group of junk artists today known as Salvage Style.  In my post, I share how I put together a fall Salvage Style outdoor vignette.  My fall anchor piece of 2014 is this great vintage orange pulley on a gate.  Why not hang it on an old gate (with a chain) like a fall wreath?  Here I placed pumpkins on rusty lanterns, and also added a small sign and raffia.


You are probably familiar with these blogging faces!  Many of them are much more comfortable than I with power tools.  While I love to repurpose and upcycle with the best of them, I stick to smaller projects and lots and lots of junk decorating inside and out.

This fall outdoor vignette is situated on a part of my front patio.

The right side of the vignette started out with old gate and pulley wreath on an old bench.  Then I added my old pumps, milk cans, lanterns, buckets of mums and grasses, and my washboard planter from my summer 
garden with pot lids.  Many of these items have been moved from my summer gardens to be reused in this fall display.  I love multi-purpose and multi-use junk!

Just move your items around at various heights and angles until you get a pleasing display.  This is my kind of "Organized Clutter".  This is fun.  Unlike organizing closet clutter...

On the right of my junky fall display, is my potting sink/bench.  Instructions for my shovel head fall sign can be found here. 

Instructions for my shovel handle project can be found here.

More galvanized items on the potting bench and some colorful gourds.  I have added an old wooden pulley and pitchfork too, just for fun!

  1. Love it all Carlene! I'd want to display all of these treasures all year long. I'm with you on the closet clutter...that's what I did most of today. Yours looks like so much more fun.

  2. Carlene,

    Your fall decor looks soooo pretty! The orange pulley (wreath) fits right in there with the rest of it.

    everything looks so fallish. :)

  3. I am drooling over that pulley! It's not always easy to pull this type of stuff together in such an eye-pleasing way, but you nail it every time!

  6. What a beautiful Fall vignette. You have such an eye for seeing the beauty and the (re)purpose in old, cast-away items.

  7. My poor front porch needs your touch! I plop a pumpkin outside my door and call it good.

    I love every detail about yours, from the garden gate with the orange pulley, to the pumpkins inside the lanterns!

  8. I'm going to have to make shovel art, I love that! Probably won't get round to it till winter and not sure I will be able to spare shovels at that time of year.
