~Just The Beginning~

Went to a few yard sales this morning with hubby and my daughter. I found some items to put in my Fall/Halloween room. I found this new web basket for 25 cents. Still has the tag on it. This thing was just screaming for me to buy it.

I also found this cubby shelf thingy to hang on the wall. It was $2.00. I just had to have it when I saw it.
Then after I brought it home. I gave it a make over to go in my daring Fall/Halloween room.
I'm still not done with it yet. I still  have to distress it. I did change my mind on painting the furniture this color. I'm going to stick to painting the table and chair black with an oak top. My black and cream material for the seats I bought a while back

I'll just use the purple to accent with but hubby wants me to at least paint one piece of furniture purple. I also painted a lid to one of my jar I already had purple.
I still have some work to do to it. I would like to stencil a star or a pumpkin on top and distress it.Isn't the jar going to look cute with candy corn and pumpkins in it.

I have decided to use burgundy,orange,mustard and green in my room. All the color of Fall. The main color for my furniture is going to be black. Still trying to decide if I want the walls to be an off white.

I also decides to use some curtains that I already have. I think they'll fit in pretty good. They have most of all the colors I'm decorating with. If I don't like them after I get the room done. I'll just have to find me the perfect one then.

Before I end my post tonight. I wanted to share a picture of my Black Velvet Petunias. I have never seen this color until this year. So I just had to buy them.

Patti - that room is gonna be so dang cool, I can't stand it!!! Loving everything!! And how cool is that that you have a DH that WANTS you to paint a piece of furniture purple!! Give that man a smooch! Mine would look at me and say "WHAT?!"(or something far worse....) And awesome finds....why can't I find sales like that? Nod just isn't a very good place to be for that kind of stuff I guess. Those petunias are awesome! Have never seen that color before....Probably be a decade or so before they hit our part of the world, but I'm gonna be looking! Have a wonderful holiday weekend! Smiles & Hugs, Robin

Great finds on your shopping trip. Good prices too. I too love to do makeovers. I like the purple, just in time for the upcoming fall season. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, what amazing things you got! You hit the jackpot! Love the colors and pattern on your fall curtains, and I especially love all those glass bottles. I'd squee if I saw all those in person!
