Fall in my entry

I’m excited to share with you what I have done to decorate my entry for fall. I went a little more simplistic this year in terms of my fall decor. Since I have such great pieces I have collected through the years, I decided to just incorporate them along with some of my fall decor.

I ended up adding a couple of pumpkins and a fall painting I painted to the dresser as you come in the door. The typewriter, camera, and books that are already there give a very fall vibe to me.

This dresser was a hand me down from my hubby’s parents. They were going to get rid of it years ago, and being newly married and needing to furnish a home, I decided to take it. It has been with us ever since. The dresser came that great green color, and I other than styling it, I haven’t done anything to it since.

We replaced the front door around five years ago, and what a difference that made in this space. I have many large windows in my home, so I chose a door that had a large window in it. It allows a lot of the light to come in, and I can see the trees that line our front sidewalk. It is really like bringing the outside in.

Along the wall next to the dresser, I created a shelf to display some pictures and add some dimension. I found the base of this shelf at a local antique shop. I had been keeping my eye on it for a while when I decided I needed it to be the bottom of the shelf I wanted to create for this space. My husband just cut me a piece of wood, I painted it, and he attatched it. I love this shelf because it is unique and it is a great place to display some photography and art.

I just simply added some pumpkins and stems to the decor that was already on the shelf. I have a painting I did of a picture I took of Lancaster County PA. The photograph is one that my Grandpa took of my college town in the 1940’s. Both of those pieces of art hold a lot of great memories for me, and I love seeing them in my home everyday.

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
