So, for this project, I only have one "before" photo for you. Yep. This is it. An extra long string of fairy lights from Target. I need you to imagine a yucky, rusty, tall bird feeder. And a can of spray paint.
The icky bird feeder with lovely bone structure was cleaned and spray painted a nice gun metal gray.
Here's how my "new" lantern looks with curtains open during the day.
On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, I noticed this wall of pumpkins. While I'm not quite ready for those Autumn staples just yet, I am loving this year's color palette, especially, the blues near the bottom left! So, my styling choices were a couple of items from my collection of lanterns, along with a vintage Coca Cola tin and a small green apple.
And now for more thrifty goodness!
