This Crafty Austinite Just Might Out-Halloween Us All — House Tour

Retro Halloween masks, handmade spooky DIYs, glitter, pom-poms, tassels and a ton of faux trees — crafter and blogger Jen Perkins doesn’t just set a few fake tombstones out on the lawn and call it a day. When it comes to Halloween decorating, every inch of her home (inside and out) is splashed with spooky decor. This is the third year in a row we’re showing off what her home looks like in October.

A Handmade South Austin Home — House Tour

Name: Lara and Adam
Location: South Austin, Texas
Size: 930 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, owned

Not counting the couches and chairs, nearly all the furniture in this home was built by its owners! Pallets, old fences…any reclaimed wood Lara and Adam found around their neighborhood became building material for their home’s contents. And they saved a lot of money by salvaging fencing they took down during the renovation and other wood scraps. From those they made bed frames, headboards, shelving, poster frames, tables, and lighting. “Anytime we realize we need something…a side table, a laundry hamper, a mirror, a ceiling light…I’ll do a quick inventory of what we’ve got laying around and figure out how I can use it to fit the space,” admits Adam. It’s this can-make attitude that inspired Adam’s side hustle: East Austin Sawdust .
