Let’s Prep Our Benches for Fall

Do you have a bench you’d like to prep for fall?  Want to do ours together?

After outfitting Spunky Daughter and Fun Son with hello, fall decor on their apartment door,…

Hello Fall Door Decor

Hello Fall. We’re Ready, Wreaths and All!

…SD said she’d love a bench for their little covered entry.  Hmm…I have just the thing.

You probably didn’t notice the painter’s bench over to the side of the back porch during summer, but not to worry.  SD didn’t, either!  I kept it fairly hidden behind the chair and end table there.

After setting the Bedspread of Blue Into a Tablescape for You, I moved some items over for a fall bench test area.

That bench needs a new coating of paint!  Oh, well…I may never see it again at my house, anyway!  (SD can do that – ha!)

I’m sure you noticed the ever-present butternut squash.  🙂

I worked very hard at finding and sweeping fallen leaves around the bench for a fall effect.  Ha!  Leaves are scarce here at Hoodmanor, but SD has plenty at their front door.  Those two kids never sweep.

And, I had  to include my favorite fall acorn pillow.  Remember last year when I added the acorn and then made the pillow from a thrift store sweater?  Fall storage brings such nice surprises.

Nothing like a bench test to free up a little porch space!

After loading the bench into SD’s car late last week, the hydrangea blooms and squash found another new home.

It’s nice to have plenty of porch sittin’  spots for enjoying cooler temperatures!

Another crochet throw, thanks to my late grandmother Bradley!

Do you have treasures from your grandparents scattered throughout your home?  Have you ever thought to use them on porches?

    GOOD MORNING from Virginia Beach VA

    Kim – I am interested in the calendar plan you use. Can it be purchased, where, how much? The one I’m using this year needs some adjusting. I’m not good at this computer, that’s part of my problem. I so much enjoy your site, thank you so much. Still can’t see where you have the time for everything.
    I don’t and it’s just me. Have a wonderful day. Sharon

    Kim is a busy little lady. Our Church has a JOY (we old folks) meeting once each month and Kim spends much of her day and evening in helping prepare and serve the meal there. Sweet person and HD is also there to help.

    Kim, I like the bench just as is. In fact, I love it. Have a great day.

      Awe, thank you, Mrs. C! I think I should go clean house or something since that’s the one area I put aside more than others. 🙂

      Thank you, Jenna. We had tons of leaves to manage in Georgia, so I’ve enjoyed the rest for these (nearly) ten years. But, I do miss the color in fall! If you send me some, my favorites are red and gold. 😉
