What I Did With What I Thrifted: Pumpkin Mammoth Re-do
Speaking of barns and split-rail fences, let's talk about Pumpkin Mammoth. Or Mammoth Pumpkin. Love the vintage-style print. Love the warm fall colors. But the brassy gold frame doesn't work with the picture. The colors get lost, and the frame itself dates the picture and not in a good way. The minute I found this little guy, I knew exactly the look he needed.
Funny how a different finish can give a piece, whether it's furniture or a simple picture, a whole different feel entirely. The same frame in a heavily-distressed, rustic white finish is what was needed to bring Pumpkin Mammoth to life. Now the colors pop - you can actually see the print! The distressed finish appeals to the vintage elements of the picture. It's the perfect rustic Fall accent.
I love it placed on our entry table, next to my other rustic Fall decor piece.
