Halloween table with Black Leaves, leaf silhouettes, by Justine Hand for RemodelistaThis week I had so much fun putting together a spectral dining room for Remodelista’s Dark Shadows week. Though it took some time and effort, it hardly felt like work.

As I said in my open to the Remodelista piece, “Good Halloween decor begins with a ghost story. Mine is about a ladies luncheon that’s gone on waaaay too long.” To create this subtly haunted setting, I hung leaves blackened with wax over a table dressed in a shroud of pale linens and bone-white china. See Remodelista for a complete DIY.
