A little taste of fall...

YAY! My favorite time of the year is here! It is still in the triple digits here and it's killing me! I am so so ready to wear scarf's and boots. Until then, I'll just make it seem like its 60 degrees outside.
 I added a few dollar tree pumpkins to this dresser, which is in our living room. 

 I bought this candle holder at a goodwill. It was baby poop green so I painted it black. I added a hobby lobby candle wrapped with some kind of ball type thing I also bought at hobby lobby.
 I picked this up from Kirklands! LOVE!
 My hubby surprised me with a bunch of candles last week. This one is cranberry woods and it smells o so good!
 More dollar tree pumpkins 
 I bought this table from Hobby Lobby.. it sits in our foyer.
 I've got my all time favorite candle burning: LEAVES from BBW! O MAN you have to get one of these!
 Our coffee table is boring.. with a glittery table runner from Hob Lob and some kind of leaf candel holder from Kirklands I bought last year for like 2 dollars.
 I obviously need to do something about this.. not really cute.
 Our fireplace just has some garland and pumpkins.. nothing fancy 

 

 FALL COLORS!!
 These are actually out all year.. lol I love fall!
 And some more random fall things around the house.



 Have you tried this one? Smells soooo good!
And this is in our guest bathroom..

So I have a lot more to do! But my toes are in the water... It's hard to really really start decorating for fall when it's 104 out.

My FREE dresser!

So a lady Shaun works with had a dresser she wanted to get rid of. HELLO FREE! So here is the before:
I think I see why she wanted to get rid of it.
So I started sanding while watching 'Up All Night'.
Then LAYERED on white paint. The husband hates it when I paint stuff white (which is everything) but pff, what do men know anyway.
I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up a few knobs for 1.50 each and here is the finished project!
It only cost me $9! I don't know what to do with it now though.. thought?
