Vintage Card Catalog Decorated for Fall

Ok guys, let me warn you about something now: it’s possible that I went a teensy bit overboard with pumpkins in today’s post. But in my defense, I was overly excited about having my beloved card catalog in our dining room and I just couldn’t help myself. Do you remember my card catalog–the one I scored for way cheap at a local antique store a while back? Well we actually just moved it out of our front room and put it in our dining room last week. I was hoping to do some kind of awesome DIY project with it, like possibly make it into a coffee table, but that didn’t really work out like I planned so it’s in our dining room for now. And honestly, I kind of love it like it is. I can move it from room to room whenever I want and it’s seriously the funnest thing ever to decorate. Really, I am borderline obsessed with this card catalog and I’ve been anxiously awaiting the day I could decorate it with pumpkins. Well that day has finally arrived and I’m tickled pink to show you guys what I put together!

Isn’t it cute?! It’s like this card catalog was made for pumpkins. And I think the key with a look like this is adding in different heights and textures. That really helps to add variety and keep it interesting. And do you guys remember that grain scoop I shared in my Friday Favorites post last week? Well I snagged it when I was styling this spot and I just couldn’t help but put a few little baby pumpkins in it. Who knew a grain scoop would have so many possibilities!? I love that little guy.

I always get all of my faux pumpkins and greenery at Michael’s. And I usually buy the dusty miller in large bundles, then cut it down with wire cutters so I can use the individual leaves wherever I want them. That makes one bundle go a lot further and it’s also handy when it comes to putting a look like this together.

I had so much fun putting this all together and I hope it gave you a few ideas for your own home. Decorating for fall is one of my favorite things to do–it just makes the house feel so cozy and warm. And even though I may have gotten carried away with all these pumpkins, I’m actually loving how this card catalog looks for fall. I tell ya, this guy is super fun to decorate and play around with–it’s definitely one of my favorite purchases EVERRRRRR.

Well my friends, that’s a wrap for today. I can’t wait to show you how the rest of our dining room is looking. Remember how I told you that we sold our table a while back? Well after weeks of looking I just couldn’t find anything I really loved to replace it. So we actually moved the table from the breakfast nook in here and I really like how much more space we have in here now. And yes, that means I had to get a new table for the breakfast nook, but that all actually worked out really well. I’ll be sharing all those updates soooooon!

    My philosophy is you can’t have enough pumpkins, so I am loving this decor. I’m thinking I need me some of that dusty miller~ your card catalog fits in there so nice too. A person just has to smile looking at that spot!

    I love this, Sarah! Some places call you to go crazy with a look…pumpkins, florals, whatever, and other times a subtle touch works. I am so excited now to get some pumpkins!! So cute. Did you paint this card catalog? It is so fun.


    • 9.8.17
      Sarah said:

      Exactly Jane! Sometimes a girl just needs to use all the pumpkins 🙂 And no, I didn’t paint the card catalog. It was like that when I bought it!

    Are the pumpkins real or fake. They really look nice I can’t tell. I am afraid it is to soon to use real ones.
