Finial Pumpkins

I had these antique bed knobs and feet 
leftover from another project. 

I can't throw anything away that might have another life,
so I'm using these in my fall decorating...

They were removed from this bed when I 
needed the other pieces for another project...

Now theses old finials are going to be part of my 
fall decor, if you can believe that....

First I painted them orange with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
in Barcelona Orange and gave the "stems" a coat of green.

As you can see I added a metal finial to the top of one of the knobs that was leftover from an old outdoor light fixture.

Next I waxed the finials with dark wax, drilled a hole in 2 
for a strand of wired berry garland.

And now... they are pretty rustic pumpkins!

Repurposing is my favorite thing to do and today it is 
for fall holiday decor!

  1. how fun! :)

    You know I LOVE saving bits and pieces too...I never throw anything away.


  2. Super duper cute! I'm the same way. I can't throw anything out if I think it could be used for another project - much to the chagrin of my husband.


  3. Such a cute idea...and you can repaint them for something else later.

  4. How creative - they are adorable!

  5. How cool! I love the way your mind works.
