Fall Home Tour Part 1
Y’all the weather in Alabama may still be in the 90s but in the Southern Yankee DIY house its fall! This is my favorite season, I love pumpkin spice, fall leaves, and football season (Roll Tide)! Plus at some point, I know that the cool fall breeze is coming to give us a break from this heat. Until then I will crank up the AC, get cozy on the couch, & continue ordering fall decor off of Amazon (here are my favorite items this year). I was able to complete the majority of the house by painting last years decor, dollar store hopping, & shopping our homes normal decor. The things I did buy came mainly from Amazon, Michaels(I know yall got a coupon :)), and TJ Maxx.
If this is your first time joining us, welcome! If you like budget-friendly & DIY decor you came to the right place. Well, let’s get started, yall come on in!
I kept the entry table clean & simple this year. I added some greenery & a little glass pumpkin I painted to the display.
Off the entryway is our “parlor room”. This basically means a room I let Justin put a bar in, I don’t exactly remember how I was bribed into this but between us I actually love it! Its connected to our dining room so its a great space for setting up the drinks for parties! I will be adding to the wall behind the bar, possibly a full wall of batten board, since I am in love love love with how our 1/2 bathroom remodel turned out!
Yall know I’m a big fan of chalkboard signs. They are great for decorating for every season & occasion! Right off our parlor room is our formal dining room. I love having a big table for family gatherings & special occasions!
Our centerpiece is simple this year, I used pumpkins from the dollar store that I painted & leaves I bought from Michaels. I wanted to do a little different color scheme than normal this year. I am really feeling the dark blues & buffalo check!
The napkins & tablecloth I made from the leftover fabric I had from the DIY Bench & Chair Cushion project! The chargers I purchased from the dollar store along with the glass pumpkins! I painted all the pumpkins white so that they will go with every year’s color scheme.
I followed the same color scheme in the living room. I added a bunch of fun florals & pumpkins.
I am swooning over the mantle this year! I love that I was able to incorporate a chalkboard fall banner.
I like to add water to the vases even for fake flowers, I think it makes them look more real.
I was able to include these target dollar section cloth pumpkins into the mix too!
Truth be told our fireplace is gas… But I really like the look of the real logs, it makes the whole scene feel very cozy. Plus when I found that basket at TJ Maxx, it was screaming “take me home & use me for firewood!” The whole thing was very awkward, but the basket won & I brought it home!
I am never without at least one supervisor watching my every move & laying on my newly fluffed pillows!
