Last fall, I decided to change up my fall decor from the usual orange, brown, and red decor by incorporating coastal colors into my fall decor. I enjoyed the look and this year I’m going to continue adding pieces that fit in with a Coastal Fall Decor theme. I was given a wire basket with candle vases by and friend just before he was about to donate it to Goodwill. I was happy to have it and knew I could give it a makeover to fit my decor. I didn’t have time to get it done last year, but it was one of the first things I pulled out to get ready for fall this year.
The basket was in good shape and it would fit in well with farmhouse decor, but not so much with my coastal decor.
It has five glass vases for holding candles. They were tinted, green, orange and this yellowish green color.
It only took a few minutes to change the look. I used Waverly Chalk paint to change them to green and blue. I used Celery for green and for Agave for blue. I gave them each two coats.
That looked much better, but I wanted to add a little more to them. I used 5/8 inch jute/nylon ribbon to wrap around each container. I hot glued the ribbon to the back side.
I still wasn’t quite pleased with how it looked along with my other coastal fall decor pieces. I decided that painting the basket was the way to give it a look that would blend in better.
I liked this much better. I planned on placing this on top of my wine bar along with some pumpkins. The blue, green and white colors look great there.
I used the same green paint that I used for the vases to give a quick coat of paint to an orange wooden pumpkin. It’s not glued on because who knows what I might want to use this basket for in the future.
I added a milk glass vase with some stems to sit on the bar behind the basket. I like to have something with some height there to hide a phone cord that falls against the wall. Some LED candles finish off the look.
I love the new look of this. It fits in great with my other coastal fall decor now. A little paint goes along way in making anything suit your own style.
Last year, I had my Coastal Cornucopia on the wine bar. It’s been relocated to the sun room this year.
We party with some awesome bloggers. We’ll be sharing at lots of these great parties.
