Pears in the Entry

My entry table and I have been at war since we moved into this apartment.  I’ve never been thrilled with our how it was decorated and to be honest, I’ve switched out about 10 completely different displays because I’m anal retentive it just never looked quite right. We have this gold ornate mirror hanging on the wall above the table, and it’s been difficult finding a few cute things that actually go with it while not overwhelming the small space.

Call the waaaambulance, I know. :)

Anyway, while at Target today I happened to see these little pears on clearance and snatched them up. They reminded me of a post I saw a little while ago on Thrifty Decor Chick and I figured I could do something with them.

After taking a quick chop to them with a kitchen knife (they’re made of foam and little white crumbs were beautifully sprinkled all over the counter and floor, so it wasn’t quite as gratifying as it sounds), I ended up with these…

With a little gold spray paint (addict), some hot glue and a piece of brown scrapbook paper, I think my entry table and I may have found some peace.

…well, until next week. I’ll let you know.

  1. Ha! I just did something similar in my kitchen! However I didn’t think of the spray paint…the huz will be so happy :)

  2. I saw them at Target tonight and I was SO TEMPTED. And then I saw an artichoke, and I was like well that wouldn’t be exactly copying.. And then Cale dragged me away and into the gaming department.

    Story of my life.

  3. So, I just thought you’d like to know, that in addition to creating an adorable decoration piece, you also scored a deal others may not have. I was at Target on Bullard and Blackstone today- guess what, pears there? Full price!

  4. Argh, so I swear I had the exact same pears, but maybe they were from Hobby Lobby. I chopped into one, and it had like a little hard concrete plaster pit in the middle! can’t cut through it and super bummed and now one pear is ruined. :(
