The V Spot

Rants, observations and home decorating from a woman with no time for a blog.

Sticks, spray paint and pumpkins, oh my!

I have already mentioned how much I love sticks.
They’re free.
Spray paint is cheap.
People will think you’re fab.
No one needs to be the wiser, right?

Instead of working on other projects, I gathered and painted more sticks today.

This will greet people who approach our front door.

I made this today. Took 15 minutes (10 of it was drying time for the spray paint.) (I am so NOT kidding when I say that there are days when I really do wish I could have this up year round.)

I also repainted my free chandelier for the 3rd time. It was red, then blue, now orange. I plan to spray paint little pumpkins in a glossy black and add them. Or black pillar candles…. not sure yet.

Not a very good photo, but the chandelier will stand out a bit more once I get my black pumpkins (or candles) up there.

Oh, yeah… and these chairs were burgundy this morning… I love spray paint.

I think I have a bit of a spray paint buzz at the moment and might possibly have killed more brain cells this week than I did my entire college career…
Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap   up           party!

Everything is perfect! I loved the chandelier when it was blue and I love it orange too (I think black candles would be nice). Are you going to paint it red for Christmas?

Great stuff! Have a great weekend.

You need to host more parties so you have more craft stuff to show off!

Love it all and for what it's worth I vote for black candles. I can't have them outside here, they melt...almost year round!
