We have been spending weekends at the lake since May, and for us, Labor Day weekend means our summer is over. Joe starts school on Tuesday, and even though he looks forward to the paycheck, his carefree days are over until next June.  

The antique wheelbarrow has been in our family for at least 70 years, and had layers of paint on it. I primed it, and then painted it white and added black and white checks. I'm storing it away for a few more weeks, and will add mums, more pumpkins, and display it when we enjoy an occasional fall weekend at the lake.

I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Beautiful restoration! It looks terrific. Good luck to Joe at school :)

  2. Debbie, you are sooooo talented! The restoration is wonderful. You're going to have so much fun decorating it for Fall or any season, for that matter!!

  3. Debbie, I like your wheelbarrow, it looks much more fancy than the old rusty green one in our garage. Wonder what your grandfather would think of his wheelbarrow sporting a fashionable new look? I bet he or whomever it belonged to would say it looks great! Good luck to you and your husband getting back to the "new, old" schedule. ------- Shannon

  4. This is adorable! I love it; and can only imagine how wonderful it's going to be with the mums! You did a great job!!

  5. Deb, This is just perfect! You did a great job painting and decorating it!

  6. What a great job you did on the wheelbarrow, Debbie! You know you have a fan here :)

    I hope Joe has a wonderful school year and that we have a beautiful fall for you to enjoy your wheelbarrow-scapes!

  7. Oh Debbie, I love this! I'm pinning it. laurie
