Pottery Barn is a start for a lot of inspired creations. We love thumbing through the catalog or clicking on images over the computer. When October hit I knew it was time to change my decor into something spooky. I started with my mantle. It went from Fall to Spooky Halloween! I will reveal this on Friday.
In the mean time, I will show you how a little inspiration from Pottery Barn started me with an idea for my mantle change.
I recreated one of the pictures they had. I have a painting I did hanging over my mantle. There are beautiful warm colors in it that really stand out with my fall decor. But when I changed to Halloween it really didn't go.
It all was based on this guy.
The Headless Horseman....da da da daaaa!
I have a little trick that I have used before. I cover the painting instead of taking it down. It is fun to change things up with this technique.
I started with my painting.
I then bought some poster board in black and spray painted it with chalkboard paint.
I pieced together what was needed to cover the painting.
I then found some old barn wood that was needed to replicate the picture.
I wrote on it with black Sharpie.
"Watch Your Heads"
I then wrote with white chalk like the Pottery Barn Picture.
Because my picture frame was shaped differently, I changed mine to fit better.
I omitted the "Welcome" and just wrote "To Sleepy Hollow"
I placed the board inside the frame and added some spider webs.
It is the perfect background for my spooky mantle.
I love the way it came out and how easy it was to do.
Oh yeah! Can't forget the cost.
everything else I had on hand
It is on sale for $149.99
