{my spooky halloween mantle}

Here are some pictures of my Halloween mantle.  I am just in love with it! So awesome.  I don't typically do a Halloween mantle just a fall one, but my aunt inspired me this year to do one!

Here is the final product:

The birds were $1 each at the dollar tree, as well as the gray fabric....

These 2 pumpkins were $1 each at Dollar Tree. I spray painted one black one chevron (silver first, tape off, then black)

OH SO FESTIVE!  Bring on Halloween!!

{DIY Tray Table}

So, I'm not sure how great of an idea this was with little kiddos running around our house in a short year or two, but I love the look!!! My inspiration was this tray table from World Market.  I fell in complete and utter LOVE with it, my husband said, "Really? $100? Surely you can make something like that for a lot cheaper...." I walked away pouting and dragging my feet calmly, brainstorming how I could make something like this on the CHEAP! Challenge accepted, husband!

Here is the before (from a garage sale $3 for 3 tray tables - I only used one...) It was really gross and had dust and spider webs all over it...YIKES!:

Here's my version:

not too shabby - my husband said he likes it!


Tray from JoAnn.  About to be spray painted black and also a piece of silver scrapbook paper for the top of the tray!

Of course here are some pics of my fall-lovin' baby!

 Happy Fall! Until next time!!
