Several years ago, while shopping in one of my favorite furniture stores,
Arhaus, I came across a clearance bin filled with shiny silver items.
Upon close inspection, I discovered that they were long silver metal antlers.
With an original price tag of $49.00 each, they were clearanced at $10/each.
So two of them landed in my arms.
I used these antlers in many vignettes, especially during the Holidays.
However, I needed a change. I needed them to have a warmer look.
So what did I do? How did I make this happen? Rub and Buff!
The original metal antler was silver and I changed it to antique gold.
I decided to change up the centerpiece on the dining room table,
using the transformed antlers and some pinecones that I found on my walk the other day.
I wanted to achieve a soft glow to the table.
Adding the brass candlesticks with my Balsam Hill Miracle Flame Candles fit the bill.
On my walk the other morning I found some mini pinecones
that were still attached to a small branch and some with the needles also attached.
I think they blew off the trees from the winds of the hurricane.
Pinecones from my walk and others that I had in my stash,
were placed in my vintage “keep in the family” ironstone bowl
and placed on the vintage grain sack around the antlers and the pumpkins.
I have grown so fond of the faux flickering candles. So mesmerizing.
With a few changes, this vignette can be taken right into the winter and Holiday season.
My walk home with my hands filled with pinecones made me think about
sticking a plastic bag in my pocket just in case I come across more treasures!
Have you found anything interesting on your walks?
Off to take my morning walk (with a plastic bag in my pocket) as it is “falling pinecone season.”
Have a most incredible day!!!
