Remember this photo from October?
I had begun spray painting a piece of an old dresser or vanity, the part that holds the mirror. At $4.99 it was a steal at Goodwill, and I envisioned it as a vintage-looking chalkboard welcome sign for the wedding. I think it turned out pretty well, don't you?
More ivory spray paint, a couple of layers of chalkboard paint, and a welcome message in chalk, and it made a perfect welcome to the wedding. I tucked it under the low-hanging branches of a pine tree and anchored the base in a small galvanized bucket. So easy, so cheap, so vintage.
Here is another little vignette I made for the hors d'oeuvres table from an antique clock lamp, some vintage cake toppers, a framed photo, and an old book. I also added a milk glass compote dish, a wire votive holder with crystals, and a few steampunk gears and keys. A vintage wedding cake topper perches on the top of the lamp base, which has the time of the wedding on the clock: 3:00. The green lamp I spray painted black.
Stay tuned for the cost reveal of our cheap DIY wedding, hopefully tomorrow!
