Many moons ago, I blogged about our buffet table that I repurposed from an antique dresser. You can read that post here. I was 5 months pregnant at the time with our 3rd baby and this was one of the many DIY “nesting” projects I’ve made. I wanted to write about my journey in repurposing this dresser, in the hopes of helping others, who, like me, had not done anything like this before. I wrote a draft. Unfortunately, that draft sat in my inbox of unpublished posts for over a year. I am finally revisiting it, and would like to share my experience with you.
I can’t believe we are in our last days of October already. Last time I posted something here was back in September. I am failing miserably to keep stuff here up to date. Life has been busy for this sleep deprived momma!
This month has always been my favourite out of the 12. And Fall is my favourite season of all! We are so fortunate in Canada to have 4 distinct seasons. Where we are particularly, Winter means white and cold, while the wet season of Spring means the blooming of beautiful flowers such as tulips, daffodils and cherry blossoms. Summer on the other hand usually means swimsuits and sunburns for us who live close to the beach. And Fall… Fall is when the colours of the leaves turn vibrant red, orange and yellow. It is a beautiful sight! If Lorelai Gilmore of Gilmore Girls can smell the coming of the snow, I can smell Fall in the air and it’s usually just before my birthday or around there.
Deep red, bright orange, cheery yellow, chocolate brown, dark green… these are just some of the beautiful colours I feast on when I look outside during this time of the year. And these are the same colours I try to bring indoors when I set up my decorations for our church.
Here’s a sample of the window decoration I made for our church during the first week of October. Hint: For a budget-friendly decor, use organic materials whenever possible. Decorating doesn’t need to be costly!
My recent project that took longer than I anticipated was repurposing this antique solid wood dresser.
