3 Simple Fall Settings Using Softer Colors

3 Simple Fall Settings Using Softer Colors

This year I decided to stay simple and towards the softer colors of Fall.  Previously I shared the buffet that was refinished and decorated for Fall using softer shades to bring in the Fall season.   I fell in love with the soft creamy shade of  yellow against the driftwood stain which lean towards a beautiful  shade of grey.  We all know how one thing leads to another and my motto being "if it don't match paint it"!   Which is exactly what has been going on around here at One More Time Events.  

Yellow and Grey Fall Vignettes at One More Time

While shopping the other day, I found these little pumpkins and gourds in the perfect shades of yellow's and white's.

and you probably know what's coming next... right?  Yes I did!  I painted some books to match and  create this small Fall vignette on one corner of coffee table.

How to paint a faux wood finish on canvas
Creating a Faux Wood Finish on Canvas covered Books
in 3 easy steps.

To create a wood like finish to the covers of the books, I used some supplies I had on hand.
Books with canvas covers
Folk-Art Sunflower acrylic paint
Behr Cotton Grey
sponge brush 

First give the covers of the books  a coat of whatever color you wish for the base color.  Let dry.

Dip the tip of your foam brush  in one of the coordinating colors of paint  and drag the tip of it across the book cover in random lines, go back and blend it in a back and forth motion until your lines are not so prominent,  clean brush, using the next color do the same technique until you reach the look of faux wood you desire and all colors are blended in.  That quick and that easy!

Refinished Finials Using homemade Chalk Paint

On the other side of the coffee table are some more of the small pumpkins on a white platter and three finials that were refinished.   Two of them using the  same colors sunflower yellow and cotton grey  the third a new color of grey sky was used.

By adding  some plaster of paris to the paint in a small container along with a small amount of water giving each finial a base coat and highlighting and blending with the gesso.

Yellow and Grey Fall Coffee Table Setting at One More Time

For my birthday I was given a Hobby Lobby gift card  and with  part of it I picked up this cute yellow  pedestal bowl and added a grapevine twig orb I also painted white  and highlighted you can see it has pretty much fallen apart and because I have a hard time getting rid of things I decided to use it by nesting  a small white pumpkin in the center of it and placing it in the metal pedestal bowl.

Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals DIY Project! #thriftbenefit

‪#‎thriftbenefit‬Thrift Benefit for Sheltered Animals DIY Project

I can't tell you how thrilled I was to be invited back to participate for this great cause Jeanette Chaney from Country Design Style puts this on every year and proud to be apart of it.  Thank you Jeanette!   Did you know that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and you  can go to to find a local shelter in your area.

This year I was able to find another great place called Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center not only do they have a great program in caring for homeless pets,  they are very active in promoting animal welfare  through community-service programs which include humane education, pet behavior counseling, and support of pet overpopulation education and programs. More on Programs & Services.

While shopping one of their thrift stores that carries a great selection of gently-used merchandise  including  clothing, furniture, household items, books, art, jewelry, seasonal items and antiques I found some great "must haves", but the best part was knowing I was helping for a good cause that help them continue to save animals and improve lives.

Now I would like to introduce to a couple of  wonderful rescues!!!

This our beautiful Bella, she was rescued from a local shelter and I do have to say we are so very lucky to find such good  loving dog  that brings much love and  joy to our home....

 This is Bella's   handsome cousin Cowboy, he belongs to my brother and sister-in-law.  Cowboy was also a rescue  from a local shelter.   Bella loves to go visit her cousin Cowboy... when we just mention his name" Cowboy" she gets so excited.   They get along so well and both are just sweethearts!!!  

Thrift Store DIY Project

Last year I shared my Rustic Fall Mantel using some rusted graters and this year,  I will be sharing how I found a wine bottle rack that I could use for all my flavored bottled syrups along with cork chalkboard tags that I made.

Those that follow me know I am a bit of a coffee lover and with so many Tornai Syrups I need and wanted a decorative way to store them and keep them organized by labeling them

Coffee Station at One More Time

Using Drop Cloths I created covers for my syrups that are on my coffee station and since I am running out of room on my coffee station, I really needed something to display, organize and have within reach,  I had to have this wine rack so it went home with me.

 But as my saying goes "if it's not the right color, paint it"  except this time I stained it with some drift wood stain

To add and create this "new syrup bottle rack"  four small finials were added to each corner after bigger holes were drilled into the four post

To finish it off I made some tags for the bottles which I will share in another post since this one is a bit long.

Fall in the Kitchen

Fall in the Kitchen

In our home everything is pretty much done in neutrals when it comes to furniture and wall color.   When using neutrals as the base to any room it allows me to make changes and not feeling like I am stuck with just one color to work with.   All I have to do is add color by adding accent pieces to bring in any color change or colors of the seasons.

Decorating the kitchen for Fall at One More Time

Adding Pops of Color for a Fall Setting

The only real color in the kitchen area comes from the valances that were made from a tablecloth,  I  love using tablecloths for valances/curtains they are very inexpensive and easy to make and these to can be changed out easily when I desire a different color in this area.

When  deciding on how I wanted  to decorate the kitchen this fall,  I used the colors within the valances which are a light teal with gold accents. which I incorporated into the centerpiece on the kitchen table.  I filled a two tier metal basket with some teal hydrangeas and filled it in with some cream and tan florals along with a couple of gold velvet pumpkins.

Most of my Fall decoration this year are geared more on colors and only using a few pieces of Fall embellishments.

 I know these are not your traditional colors of Fall, but those of you that know me,  know I am not the traditional type and love the challenge of taking a theme or a season and creating a unique setting with color, yet still staying within the boundaries of the colors of the season.  

Fall Tablescape at One More Time

I used an ivory table cloth with a gold runner as the base of my tables setting.   Using some wood chargers helps keep that rustic Fall feel along with  plates that have a brown edging.

To keep the balance of colors I  added some white soup bowls  pulling the lighter color from the tablecloths as well as the white in the teal napkins.

I just love the little material piece that comes as part of the  packaging  when you purchase your napkins.  Do you use this piece?  or just throw it away?  I used this piece by wrapping it around a brass Turkish coffee pot filled with twine wrapped silverware .  Details and flow are important to me, the reason I used a Turkish Coffee pot to hold the silverware, as most of you may already know I have a complete coffee station within the same room.  

Decorating the Coffee Station 

Coffee Station decorated for Fall at One More Time

Over at the coffee station  I carried out the gold and teal.  Purchasing a couple of packages of small pumpkins and gourds from the Dollar store,  I hand painted  the pumpkins and gourds in gold and filled the glasses up with them. I created small centerpieces  in my white pitchers  also using the gold pumpkins/gourds along with some teal hydrangeas

Keeping the velvet pumpkins in the flow of things I added a large velvet pumpkin to a brass plate and added a few more teal hydrangeas to mimic the table setting.

I just love how it is so easy to incorporate colors any time by just adding a few pops of color to the neutrals to create a whole different look geared to the season.
