Oh, my Thanksgiving is on its way and I still have ghosts in my front yard! In the week leading up to our daughter’s wedding, my sister was tasked with getting my fall decor on the main level.
Auntie Tricia has never met a holiday that she can not take to the next level.
After I cleared out the cross-holiday Halloween decor I consolidated the fall to focus on a Thanksgiving centerpiece.
Our dining room is the first room guests see as they climb the first flight of stairs in our brownstone in the suburbs home.
Usually, unexpected friends would find a tape measure, handbag or sweatshirt on the dining room table. But for Thanksgiving (often pushed to the side by the third week of November) I wanted to dress up my Thanksgiving centerpiece in the dining room.
NEXT LEVEL THANKSGIVING CENTERPIECE
While we were running errands the week of the wedding we had to make a stop at Home Depot for gold spray paint. I wasn’t sure what Tricia was going to do with the spray paint.
We had to implement rules around painting because when she visits we like to paint random walls and objects- like this hutch.
With the wedding days away spray paint was the only thing I could manage. I knew whatever she had in mind it would be amazing, but still.
We were three days from the wedding.
STEPS TO A THANKSGIVING CENTERPIECE
- Rustoleum gold spray paint. I found it at Home Depot.
- I use a Chewy box when I spray paint anything. The box flaps protect the contents from the elements.
HERE IS THE SECRET SAUCE OR TIP FOR THIS CENTERPIECE
4. Use your tired berry garland, faux or real, faux pumpkins for this centerpiece. You know the fall decor at the bottom of the bin.
5. The spray paint, like a spray tan, is very forgiving.
I love to use spray paint to change everything from my husband’s DIY wrought iron bench …
Spray painting takes minutes and the look is instant. I never thought to spray a strand of berry garland or the faux leaves.
I love the look. It adds sparkle to tired bits and pieces of fall decor. It dresses up the table. If you add a little lighting it gives a glow that is magical this time of year!
What is so fun about this is you can mix it up with different colors of spray paints!
