Keep reading to see how I decorate a Hall Bench for Fall, by re-using some things I already had, plus a few new thrift store things.
Ever since I decorated my Hall Bench for the Fourth of July, I’ve been wanting to decorate it for Fall. You may know that I like to decorate my Coffee Station area for different seasons.
This is my bathroom before I decorated for Fall.
Well, now that we are at Century Farms, my Coffee Station isn’t in its own area. So I started decorating the stove area a little bit– and now my newest favorite place to decorate seasonally is this Hall Bench!
This is a piece of Amish furniture that I painted with Black Dog Salvage Furniture Paint. Then I put it in my Bathroom as a Sock Changing Station! I love it– my husband and I each have our own drawer for socks, and it’s really nice to have a place to put stuff on sometimes. (If you don’t have room for a bench in your bathroom– you might have room for a chair.)
I didn’t buy or make anything new to do this. I reused things I have saved from other years. Well, actually, I did buy some fall candles at the thrift store a few months ago….. so I guess I did spend a few dollars.
Add a Sign
To start, this is a pumpkin sign that I added some beadboard to on the back, to give it more interest.
Add some Ribbon
Then on the right, I put some ribbon and felt decor on the laundry pass-through doors. (Instead of a laundry chute, I have a pass through– because the laundry room is on the other side of the doors. That eliminates the need for a hamper or basket in the bathroom!)
I attached the ribbon to the cabinets the same way I did when I used it in my Kitchen— with masking tape.
Candles are always a good idea. Even if you’re not going to burn them, you can find them in such fun shapes. Did you know that fun shaped candles are called “statement candles”?
When I found these large pine cone candles at a thrift store, I was sure they would be amazing fall and Christmas decor. Then I found the orange/ burnt orange ones with leaves on the sides, and I knew they were perfect, too. I can’t remember where I found them, though, whether it was a yard sale or a thrift store….
A friend gave me this yellow scarf. I’m not sure I will wear it, although I might– but I immediately knew it would look perfect in my fall decor!!
I’ve had the purple leaf candle for so long I can’t remember where it came from…
I have several seasonal shower curtains, but I don’t have one for fall. So I decided to hang my fall burlap banner up and it looks perfect! This is what faces the bench.
I hung this paper plate on the Robe Hook just for fun. (Well, this whole thing is just for fun, right?!) I had saved it from a time I hung it on a cabinet. Use masking or clear tape to attach the plate to the ribbon.
Fall Bench Decor!
Doesn’t it look so cozy?! But wait– I have one more thing to add to make it PERFECT.
Be Thankful Pillow
This ‘be thankful’ pillow. Burnt orange is not usually a color I would choose. But it is so velvety soft, and it has a cute doily like edging on it. And we can always use a reminder to be thankful.
There! Now doesn’t it look absolutely perfect?!
