10 Golden Pumpkins


I'm still on a gold spray-painting spree, but this time I'm combining it with my love of all things Autumn. 

Also, I found the holy grail of gold spray paint. Forget that Krylon nonsense, Rustoleum is the way to go. This is my new go-to. It goes on incredibly smoothly, and it's so shiny! I found it at Walmart for about $6. 


This took me about a half hour last weekend, and now I have all of these beautiful, inexpensive decorations for Fall. It occurred to me later that I could have used plastic, store-bought pumpkins to have these decorations for years to come. Oh well, next time!


It should be mentioned that I am shamelessly copying this idea from Anthropologie. How lovely would this be for a dinner party?



 I started out with 10 little orange pumpkins. 




I really could not believe how smoothly this went on. 


And look how shiny and pretty!





Once they were dry, I scattered them about my apartment. 









On a side note, did you know that magic eraser gets rid of sharpie lines on pumpkins? 




Look how nice this guy turned out. 




I hope you're enjoying the season as much as I am! (:

I'm pretty well set for this year, but I think I'm going to have to do some serious clearance shopping (and altering) for next year ... Fabulous!

your apartment is so homey looking! I did this with dollar store pumpkins last year and still am enjoying them this year. my spray paint was no where near as shiny as this paint though!

Did this exact thing to my pumpkins last week! Love this idea!

I recently ditched Krylon spray paint, too! I couldn't believe how much nicer the other stuff I bought went on (can't remember the name off the top of my head).
