Pumpkin-licious!

Yep, fall is in the air! I have looked everywhere in town for faux white pumpkins to decorate with and could find none. I really want to get my house spiffed up before my parents, sisters and aunt and uncle (from Spokane!) arrive for JUNK FEST. I decided I'll just paint some of the orange ones I already have...This is the end result - all satin ivory covered. Oh, the chair will be FOR SALE at JUNK FEST. It started out yucky brown with an even uglier vinyl seat in a green color I've never seen before! Burlap, batting and stenciled-on numbers make for a new cushion!Here are more painted pumpkins in a darker shade of ivory...I know, I know...black pumpkins? I love 'em! (Sorry for the bad reflection in this picture). I added some scrapbooking letters to one of the pumpkins to give it a little zip (they are raised letters that look like keys from an old typewriter). Wouldn't REAL old typewriter keys glued on be fun too? One more thing - the neat old suitcase in this picture will be FOR SALE at Junk Fest also! So don't throw out those old pumpkins; simply give 'em a face-lift! And, see you soon at JUNK FEST where we junk girls will have lots of fun, fresh fall decor and neat accessories for displaying it in and on!

  4. Your pumpkins look marvelous....I can never find any white pumpkins so always use spray paint, but I have never tried black...I am loving it. What about adding "Boo" in black letters to the white ones. That's what I did for Halloween last year.
    Happy junking.

  7. Very cool! So clever!

    While I'm working away during the evenings, *listening* -- who actually watches?!?! -- to the television and those spray paint ads come on...I immediately think of four fabulous JunkGirls and their arsenal of paints and triggers!
