Hey, hey TT&J peeps! I’m Jessica from Mom 4 Real, and I am so excited to be back here sharing some fun home decor! It’s my favorite season…I adore Fall. I live in Kentucky, and it’s already nice and cool here, and the pumpkins are ready to harvest. I am in a Fall decorating frenzy for sure! I started with my mantel last week, and somehow Fall ended up taking over my entire house. Today I want to show you a cute little Fall vignette that I created using an old some old shutters and a little washi tape!
This is the space before…cute, but a little to Summery. (Is that even a word? Let’s just pretend it is.)
I found this old set of shutters at the Peddler’s Mall a few weeks ago, and just couldn’t leave them. They sat in my garage for a couple of weeks, then one day, I decided they needed to be orange.
I spray painted them with two coats of Valspar’s Color Radiance in Gloss Orange and let them dry.
Then I dry brushed on some aqua paint to give it a little bit of a distressed look. I knew exactly where I wanted to put it, but needed to figure out how to tie the orange into the area.
I grabbed my bucket of washi tape and added a band of cute aqua tape around the bottom of my lamp shade and a band of orange and white polka dot tape around the top. The great thing about the washi tape is that it is so low tack that it is not permanent and can be removed any time!
I added some mini pumpkins in with some pretty potpourri I had and filled my glass lamp…isn’t it cute?
Then I plopped a few pumpkins around and stood back…
I love it…it’s fresh, but still says Fall is here.
Thank you so much for having me each month…this is one of my favorite places to be!
Happy Fall Y’all!
Jessica! I love that little area that you change up for the seasons!! You use the same colors I do for Fall – Orange and Turquoise. And I love the use of washi tape too. So fun!!

This is too cute! I just bought washi tape to dress up the lamp in my daughter’s room, though, but it was so low tack that it won’t even stick to the shade. What am I doing wrong?
Love your fall vignette..this is creative way to bring out charm by re purposing old things.Thanks a lot for inspiration!
Washi tape to jazz up a plain jane lampshade – killer idea! You’re so right, with its low tack, you could easily change out the accent colors as the mood takes you.
Jen, love what you did to those shutters and the lampshade. Pretty vignette you created!!

Okay I am a serious lampshade revamp-addict so washi tape is the PERFECT solution to my ribbon/glue gun conundrum. Thanks for sharing this Jessica!!

What a super smart idea with the washi tape on the lampshade!! I am going to try that. I need to jazz up a current plain one and that is right up my alley!! I love temporary 🙂 Super cute vignette all around. Really fun, colorful and happy.
So fun! I love it! I’m so inspired to decorate my house for fall now!
LOVE the colors- the whole feel is happy & yet calming.
