A couple before and afters

So I'm still sulking (just a little) over the fact that I will be switching schools this year.  I'll be over it soon (hopefully).  I didn't do much yesterday, so I thought I'd show ya a few more things I did over the weekend.

Here is a before picture of the wall behind the door in our bathroom. 

Directly to the left is our shower.  For 2 years this wall was blank, and it never bothered me.  Then a couple weeks ago it started thinking that I really should put something there.  I found some square black mirrors at Goodwill and thought that this blank wall would be the perfect place for them.  Here's what the wall looks like now:

Not overly special, but much better than the blank wall.

I also painted my pumpkins that I found at Goodwill.  Here they are before:

and after:

The paint looks more "coppery" in person.  I should really learn how to use my camera sometime.

Well, that's about it.  Hope everyone has a great day!

Those pumpkins are too cute! I am so not crafty, because I see the plain pumpkins and think, eh, and it never occurs to me that you could paint them and make them look so great. I really like the mirrors, too! I may have to copy that for a blank wall in our house.
