Another AS Chalkpaint Project and Some Pretty Pumpkins

Hello! I hope your having a good evening, great fall weather today and I’m so loving it and enjoying it too, it will be gone before we know it friends!
I’m showing the centerpiece on my diningroom table, I found the nice, strong basket at GW a week or so ago for $2.00! In it I used things from last year that I’ve done, I used glitter glue on the white pumpkin and the pear is covered with cinnamon it’s held up great since I did it a couple years ago.
I’ve also tried Pic Monkey as you can tell with the text in the middle of the photo. Some things on there are pretty neat I just have to experiment more.

I’ve had this oil painting since the 70’s, I wanted to keep the frame because he had chosen it but I needed it to be a different color. So out came the AS Chalkpaint in French Linen. This pic is from when I remembered to take a picture using a piece of cardboard so that I didn’t have to take the picture out to paint the frame, worked great!

You can see where I have to do any crafting, my poor diningroom. Yes, that’s a shower curtain that I bought at a rummage sale for .25, I use it to paint on any crafts that I do. You can see that I did darken it with a medium and black craft paint and I’ll show it when I’m done with my mantel, okay?

I can't wait to see your mantel. I have to craft and do projects in my dining room too. My kids come through and say "the mom bomb" has gone off again. I would love a craft room...someday:-) I love that you have a painting that your dad did. That is so special!
