I don’t always put up Halloween decorations. However, my kids LOVE Halloween and we will be hosting a family gathering this weekend, so why not? I was not going to go too crazy, I mean my hubs and kids already did a fair amount of Halloween crafting and decorating. But I thought a spooky Halloween mantle and a few touches in the entry way would be perfect (plus I really could not let the hubs and the kids outdo me;)).
I have been seeing some industrial sconces on Etsy and some blogger home tours lately. Of course, I started obsessing over them which lead me to try to make my own. I thought about putting it in my son’s room but then I opted to put it next to my large chalkboard in my dining/sitting room so I could move the lamp (that took up almost the entire table surface) in order to free up some end table top space a (for more decor, obviously). So follow along and I will show you how easy it is to make your own DIY industrial sconce.
I am back with another Friday Favorites post. This is where I talk about the cool things I have seen on the interwebs or real life that I love or can’t live without or that made me smile. Here we go.
If you follow me on IG, you have already seen some of my new favorite things. But let’s get into a little more detail, shall we?
I am obsessed with decorating with antlers, like a lot of other people these days. In my house, I have real antlers over my bed, on my mantle and on various shelves. I have fake ones scattered throughout the house as well. I have been seeing some other versions of antlers on Pinterest and blogs. In particular, I have seen some “natural antlers” by a company called Eco Deer. I LOVE the look and and all the options so I thought I could try my hand at some DIY natural antlers.
I think this is our living room? Honestly, I don’t know the difference between living room and family room. I grew up in a house where we had a living room and then a kitchen/dining/sitting area. No family room, per se. So in my house, I call this room our living room. Besides the dining room and entry way, this is the only other area of our house I decorated for fall. And by “decorate” I really just mean pillow cover changes, a few fall-ish vignettes and some general decor rearranging. So lets get on with this fall living room reveal.
