More Rustic Autumn Vignettes

September 20, 2013
On one of my first thrifting trips after Christmas, this vintage wooden bowl wheelbarrow was one of my finds.

I paid $2 for it, and it was marked Woodcroftery.  That post was here.

I really haven't used it yet, so I decided to spray paint it a dark orange for use this fall.

I sanded it down a bit on the edges and rubbed a stain over it to tone it down.  Here it is with Spanish moss and gourds and placed it on my crock table outside.

Wood Raisin Crate
I also brought my raisin crate inside today and cleaned it up, and then rubbed a little coconut oil on it to warm up the wood.  I recently rubbed coconut oil into my vintage wooden kitchen utensils on a post here.

I added raffia to the box.

Also a rustic lantern filled with gourds.

 More gourds, mini pumpkins and Indian corn.

Here the vignette is on my kitchen table.

But it easily moves to the deacon's bench in the foyer to bring fall color to the entrance.
