Fall Market Days and Blue Pumpkins



ChartreuseandCo Scavenging Farmhouse Decor Scavenging Inspiration

Last weekend, my sister and I had the opportunity to shop the Chartreuse and Co.  Fall Market Days located in Buckeystown, Maryland. I would strongly encourage you to go if you’re in the area and you love farmhouse decor.  Think Joanna Gaines and Fixer Upper style.

I’ve included over 50 photos of things that caught my eye, and things that could possibly be DIY or a project, but I really could have taken 4 times that amount.  

If something inspires you, don’t forget to pin it.  You know you’ll forget where you saw it.

This is from their website:

Explore our 100-year-old barns (a 108-foot-long, 2-story dairy barn, a 19th century bank barn, and a corn crib adorned with stable doors from Yankee Farms),  2 quirky outbuildings (a stone milking parlor/spring house and a storage barn enlivened with a covering of vintage shutters).  All 6 buildings are filled with vintage finds, and displays described as a “3D Pinterest board”.   Come see what all the fuss is about!

You can find more about Chartreuse and Co. here but I’ve attached the rest of their 2017 schedule.  I feel I need to return to see how this great group of artisans and designers decorate for the holidays.

You know I love vintage style signs and they had several at the market.

You’ve probably seen fabric pumpkins before but how about velvet pumpkins.  Add a  little class to the little orange gourd.

DIY candlesticks made from porch spindles and vintage bullseye plinth blocks.

This cart may be just a tad too large as a centerpiece but I do love how it’s holding fall pumpkins and mums.  Perfect for a front porch.

I’ve done a vintage window with a boxwood wreath, but how about pairing a grapevine wreath and berries for the fall season.

Newspaper on canvas makes a great backdrop to this handpainted pumpkin.

A vintage foundry mold paired with metal legs makes an incredible  upcycled side table.

If you like the look of these mega lightbulbs you can easily  (though not inexpensively ) create the look yourself.  I found some of these bulbs here.  Pair these up with the pendant fixture from the salad bowl light I showed you a couple weeks ago and you have an instant pendant light.

License plates make awesome upcycled key rings.  I also saw key rings  made from just the larger individual letters.

Another hand painted pumpkin, this time on a pillow.

Another use for an old wooden window.

A little rope makes any glass jar nautical.

I’m obsessed with anything with drawers.  Can’t help but wonder how one set of drawers has so many different finishes…didn’t they all age at the same time?

ChartreuseandCo Scavenging Farmhouse Decor Scavenging Inspiration-016

I definitely have to try this one…metal piping paired with an old galvanized tin.  The whole thing is screwed to the desk top.

I’ve made coffee tables from a chicken incubator and a chicken coop…what can you do with a chicken feeder or is it a roosting box?

Two upcycled light fixtures, one with a large saw blade and the other a minnow trap.  You really shouldn’t throw anything away.

Another ceiling light fixture near the other two with smaller saw blades, pipes and barn wood.

You may not want to pass up that next set of lockers…this one is set up with bar ware.

I fell in love with this table setting.  Maybe if I start now I could recreate this by Thanksgiving. By the way, those are all real pumpkins.

 While this entire cupboard was gorgeous, I loved how they paired the clean white lines of the piece with the chippy paint backing.

Candlesticks and pumpkins, I think it’s a thing.

More drawers…enough said.

ChartreuseandCo Scavenging Farmhouse Decor Scavenging Inspiration

These balusters are from a Victorian or Country style home.  I’m sure I could reproduce the look with a  jigsaw, but does anybody have a good upcycled or recycled idea for them?

ChartreuseandCo Scavenging Farmhouse Decor Scavenging Inspiration

Cute, simple and easy to make.  Just need an old rake and a piece of barn wood (or pallet wood).

And even more drawers. <3

Never thought of decorating with a tool belt, but it totally works.

Blue/gray pumpkins were everywhere.

 A giant dictionary!  I really need this for my next game of Scrabble.

This table setting wasn’t quite as elaborate as the  first table, but I love the hydrangea stems in the little mini pumpkins.  Totally something I could do.

Just to give you an idea for a pretty fall mantel.

Pumpkins with toolboxes and candlesticks (and a few hydrangeas).

This industrial cart with the perfect amount of chippy paint is now a bar cart.  That’s a fairly narrow shelf because there are drawers on the other side.

This wasn’t a light fixture (notice those rusty pieces are held on by string, not wire) but it should have been.

Sorry for the quality of this picture, I assume I’m taking into the sun.  A lot of barn doors, shutters and other salvaged goodies outside.  Tons of furniture in the barn.

Would you ever think of using clipboards as placemats?

Another chicken coop.  Inside storage?

Who knew that a half chair makes a great pumpkin stand?

I have a couple metal trashcans filled with scrap wood.  Maybe I need to dump them to hold my mums.

If I decorated like this it would just look junky.  Pumpkins, flower pots and corn husks, so cute.

I wanted you to see what they put above the windows.  I believe these are old cow hay feeders.

On the same building, a rusty window vent well above the door and an old frame.

Four foot plywood jack -o-lanterns.  Break out the jigsaw for this fun DIY.

If you like this cute dresser, I found you the poster.

This booth had a lot of furniture and it all had wallpaper  inserts which looked a lot like embossed tin.

Another vintage window.  Have you seen one of these before?  Those are decorative thrift store plates and bowls and flat marbles glued onto the window.  I’m giving you the link to another blogger that has created one of these.

I love painted furniture and this one is so fun with the checkerboard and little red knobs.

We’re expecting our first grandchild in December so I definitely see this project in my future.  This is a thick canvas, about an inch, with scuffed edges.  All I need are some baby toes.

I hope I was able to inspire you, I know I see a few projects in my future.  Did you find anything to pin?
