Fall Wall Decoration


I would like to thank Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Metamorphosis Monday. Click on her link to see what other bloggers have done and get ideas of what you might do.
Don't you love it when you read a post that gives you inspiration. Well, Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick posted a fall decorations she created. She has a beautiful blog with a lot of lovely and practical ideas. If you haven't checked it out, you must go over.

This is my tin sconce as it looked when I purchased it at the thrift store. Yuck.

This is what it looked liked once I spray painted it a rubbed bronze and put a couple of fall picks in it that I picked up at Michaels. They spray paint was the most expensive thing that went into this.
When looking online at QVC, I saw this Valerie Parr Hill wall sconce for $75.00. Anyone who paid $75 for this must not be crafters or bloggers.

It looks fantastic!!!! And you saved a bundle! Yours looks better than the $75 anyway, IMHO! :) Thanks for sharing!
