I've Changed It Already

I just didn't think the cornucopia was quite right on the coffee table, I wanted someting just a little bit more elegant looking.  You know with a little class or something.  So I got out some spray paint and painted one DT pumpkin silver and two gold.  Then I started playing.

Here is what I came up with.



I love the cornucopia, but I think it will look much better in the familyroom and be fabulous.  Yip-skip - two spots taken care of.


I pulled out my gold serpent stand and then filled the glass insert with moss, some ivy, a pumpkin and grapes.  I surrounded it with the large silver pumpkin, one small gold one and the aqua one that I previously had under the cloche.  I placed another small gold pumpkin under the cloche.
















A little more elegant for the living room, don't you think?

  7. Marty, Please tell me exactly what brand of spray paint you used. Also, what is a DT pumpkin? I love the gold and silver. Orange doesn't look good in my house so this idea is good for me. Can't wait to hear your answers.
