Gratuitous Fall Post

Before the influx of winter/Christmas posts begin, I thought I'd make an effort to post one last gratuitous fall post.

You may remember this post from back in the summer where I shared how I decorated our storage building. Although I loved the whimsical details, it wasn't an aesthetic that would transition well into the autumn season.

The first change I made was repainting the mirror from it's prior lavender color to a more appropriate pumpkin shade of orange.

Also, to come down were metal butterflies that adored each door. They were replaced with inexpensive grapevine weaths found at a local discount store. I spray painted them black for a bit of a Halloween-y feel, and decided to leave them for the remainder of the season.

The last change was made to the window boxes. The spent impatiens came out, and cool weather loving johnny-jump ups went in.

I'm already looking forward to transitioning it from fall to winter.

Wishing you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving!
