{halloween decor – just a little…}


I wanted to do a ton of decorating for Halloween this year, i LOVE Halloween -  i had plans, BIG plans i tell ya, but things got in the way.  I have sold a bunch of furniture lately and some custom orders in the works – so i am busy!  I’ll post some before and afters soon :)

Until then, here is a my mantel that i threw together.  I had some old shutters – spray painted them black, sanded them down, and then screwed them together all crazy like.

I think it needs something in the middle of the shutters – i tried a book wreath but i wasn’t feelin it…

I stopped on the way home from work and broke some sticks off an old dead tree then i threw some spanish moss on them and some little dollar store birdies – i wish i would have bought a hundred more of those little birds – maybe next year…
