Well, that’s a mouthful! Try saying that 10 times fast.
I thought it would be fun to compile some of my favorite fall furniture photo shoots for you guys today. The fall colors are so fleeting, so I usually only manage to get one or maybe two pieces of furniture completed at just the right time to take advantage of the opportunity to stage those pieces outside.
I was hoping to take the photos of the bookcase I shared last week outside, but I took those photos on that Tuesday when the ‘feels like’ temp was 12. Somehow I didn’t ‘feel like’ staging an outdoor photo shoot that day.
But I have a handful of favorites from previous years, so let’s take a look.
The midnight buffet is at the top of my list.
I painted that back in 2016 in Fusion’s Midnight Blue.
It was fun to stage it up with falling leaves and a little non-collection of whisk brooms.
Another favorite from that same year was a pair of end tables that I painted with the union jack in shades of gray.
I did a few of these union jack pieces back in the day, and I still love that look.
They were rather putzy to do though, and they never sold quickly. I think there is a limited market for them that only includes anglophiles.
This washstand that I painted in 2018 was perfect for a fall furniture photo shoot.
It’s painted in my favorite Dixie Belle Drop Cloth, and has that old Seeds transfer on it.
This chippy barrel chair was a fun makeover in 2015.
I painted it in Miss Mustard Seed’s Linen. It looks great sitting in front of my Limelight hydrangea.
And speaking of that hydrangea, here is another fun piece that I staged in front of it.
I paired up an old metal typewriter stand base with a barnwood top to create a unique side table. I kind of wish I’d kept that one for myself now. I may have to be on the lookout for another base like that.
Last up is this little chest of drawers that I painted way back in 2014, in Miss Mustard Seed’s Kitchen Scale.
Our yellow maple tree was the perfect contrast to set off that teal blue color.
You never know, maybe I’ll manage to still get a fall furniture photo shoot in this year. But then again, maybe not. In the meantime, I hope you enjoyed looking back at some of my favorites!
