Guest Room Mirror Wall...Inspiration

Hope you had a great weekend!!  Sorry I have not posted in a while...I have been working on several projects.  One that I will share my inspiration photos of are for our guest room.  I am working on a mirror wall for this room.  I have antiques in this room and 95% are from our family members.  Since I am not done with it I will be posting photos of mirror walls I love!!! 

I love the idea of adding hand mirrors to the collection!!!  When I found the image below I fell in love with the look..........
I am on the hunt for a few hand mirrors now to finish my wall....as soon as I get it finished I will post photos.  I will also be writing a post about our guest room soon!!  Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do and hope you have a great Monday!!

Simple White Pumpkins

Good Evening!!  Hope you had a great weekend.  Tonight I want to share with you a Fall display I have been working on.  As many of you know our dining room has a lot of white in it.  So I wanted to stay with that color palette with my Fall decor as well.  The only problem with that is most of the white pumpkins I found were either more money than I wanted to spend or not a true white.  So as I was getting my Fall decor out I found a few pumpkins that would look great in there but the wrong color...
As you can see the one on the right is BRIGHT orange and the other one is not too bad but still not white!!  So while I was at Wal-Mart I found these cute little pumpkins..."kinda" white but still not right...but I thought for $1 each I could fix that!!
So to get the color/look I wanted I just used white spray paint...ta da..White Pumpkins!!!!
They were super easy to do...I put tape around the stems so they would stay brown then I wore a rubber glove so I could twirl them as I painted.  They dried really fast and seems like the paint will hold up for a few seasons.  I love how they turned out!!
I am still adding to my display but it's a start!!

Old Bottles + Burlap + Buttons

Hope you are having a great Labor Day weekend.  I have been busy addeing more Fall decorations to my house.  I also did a few simple/fast projects!!  First I started with some old brown bottles...I paid about $1 for each one at a local antique mall.  Placed them under a cloche I already had.  But after looking at them I thought they looked a little "naked".
So I decided to go thru my stash of vintage buttons I got from my aunt.  There were so many to choose from but I was trying to stay with something that went together but was different.  Also I had some burlap left from some other projects....
Sorry the last two didn't turn out very well...the 1st and 3rd buttons have rhinestones on them the middle does not.  Now they look a little more "dressed" and I thought the burlap would be a great texture.  also I cna keep these out during the year since they are not specific to Fall.  I just love the way they turned out. :)
