My New Use for Chalk Paint!

I've always loved white pumpkins and enjoyed using them in my Fall decor last year.  I want to add more in this year; however, I can't seem to find little ones ANYwhere.  Soooo, I bought a box of these little cuties at Wal-Mart and introduced them to my AS Old White chalk paint!

Before:


VOILA!



Now to finish the rest of them!  I look forward to showing you soon where I used these little cuties.

Thank you, Annie!  And, just think, everyone, you could paint pumpkins any of the chalk paint colors you have to tie in with your color palettes!  I bet a few Duck Egg Blues, with a hint of dark wax would be fabulous!  Hmmmm ... might have to try that myself.  LOL


I hope everyone has fun plans for the weekend.  We're hitting the beach with friends and watching college football tomorrow.  Speaking of football, I had fun making this USC Gamecock wreath for a friend of mine ... I have a few more orders to fill.  Don't you just love Fall ?!


Thanks for stopping by!

I wanted to use white pumpkins this year, but am afraid they will not show up well enough against our white house, or my off white mantle? I did buy some green paint to try some things with, tho. Just in the mood to change things up this year.
Soo cute what you did. I was hoping you would hurry up and show your fall decor so that I could copy it all :)

What a great idea. I purchased my first Annie Sloan paint this week. I am so excited to give it a try. Love the white pumpkins too! Not your traditional look. I've used some white ones too on the dining table. Posted a pic today. Hope you have a great weekend.

Looks terrific! I've got to learn more about the chalk paint. Wondering if it would work well on a bath vanity!!! Hmm!!

Thanks!

Saw you at Debbies. The natural white ones are so expensive, this is a great alternative.

Does the chalk pain give them a look of ceramic? They look great, Becca. And the wreath..Fabulous!
