Happy Friday, Friends! Today is the final stop along my 2015 Halloween Haunted House Tour.
Let’s finish things up with my spooky haunted dining room.
The antique walnut sideboard in my dining room is another spot in my house that gets decked out for all the different holidays and seasons throughout the year. I love my sideboard dressed in old ironstone china as the backbone of my displays, and then I layer in vintage transferware to fit the season. Of course for Halloween, I pull out the black pieces.
The shelves and marble top give me lots of room for extra seasonal additions, too.
I love old things. Vintage, antique, rusty junk, primitive, or heirloom… they are all welcome here. I am a sucker for the history of these things. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a deep appreciation for such things from the past. My sideboard dates back to the 1860’s. Many of my dishes are 50-100 years old. There are family pieces here, too. Those I treasure the most.
An old funky junk metal kitchen scale, with my Missy Nik’s hand-painted ceramic skulls peeking out. I have quite a few skulls and bones on the sideboard this year. They always go so well on the menu.
The sideboard is also home to most of my beloved Lori Mitchell Halloween figures this year.
The green wooden box belonged to my grandmother and housed some of her buttons and sewing supplies, which I still own. There’s some old family silver here, too. And spiders of course.
A closer look at the details.
Bobby Bonz is a new guy. A handcrafted clay piece by my very talented friend, Paige. A party favor from her Halloween luncheon. I’m a very lucky girl.
That’s it, my friends! I do so hope you’ve enjoyed the tour!
Last chance to pick up one of these final remaining fall prims in my shop! The doors close for the last time on Sunday, so don’t miss out!
