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!
