More AS Chalkpaint Projects

Hi everyone! We have had beautiful weather here in Pa. sunny and wonderful temperatures. I decorated my front porch yesterday because the weather was so nice, I'll show you at a later date when I'm all done!
I have also did two more projects with my AS Chalkpaint, just loven this paint so much. This is an urn that needed spruced up a bit, so I ditched the ugly flowers and the urn only cost me $1.00 .
Urn that I bought at a yard sale full of an ugly arrangement.
The AS Chalk paint went on so smooth and that is one of the reasons I love it so much, you can see in the picture at how creamy it is and so easy to distress!

Love...I have it sitting on the table between my two livingroom chairs
Now this isn't completely done but wanted to give you an idea of where I'm headed in my diningroom. In fact I have the fabric, which I bought at JoAnn's, folded under the seat just to see what it looks like. I painted it with the Paris Grey, I haven't distressed it yet I'd like to wait and purchase a wax before I do.

This is what it used to look like, love it but it's time for a change, I'll just use the black and white fabric right over the drop cloth just in case I want that look again.
Here is another pic!

This is what I saw out my window yesterday morning...turkeys, I kept waiting for a male to spread his feathers but I think he was just to busy eating:)
As always thanks for stopping by, don't forget to like my Facebook page, it is on my sidebar at the very top! Thanks!
I'll also be joining these wonderful linky parties♥

I am so liking ASCP. I am a tight wad,so this was a stretch for me but I love the paint.
As far as turkeys.......I had several just like this in my back yard yesterday. They are so funny how they parade around.

I love that urn, it looks so pretty with it's new paint job. And the chair is fabulous! I like both fabrics. I haven't tried the ASCP yet but I have my eyes open for something to use it on!

Looking forward to seeing your front porch! Wow, turkeys, I'd hide if I were them! ;-D

Pamela said...

Just lovely!! Thanx for linking up to THT! Hope your week is going well!

I love the urn & the sweet arrangement in it!
I am crazy for gingham fabric of any kind. Your bench will look so pretty with it and it will also be nice to have the option of going back to the drop cloth one should you want to.

The urn looks great painted and I love the pumpkin arrangement in it!!
Love the black and white fabric on your bench. Great idea to have the choice of going back to the drop cloth if you want to.

Gail said...

The urn looks great, Rondell!
What a great idea to leave the drop cloth underneath the gingham fabric to change back if you want.
Your house is soooo pretty.
I love everything you've done!

I always love how paint transforms things. I enjoyed seeing the turkeys too. My mom has wild turkeys that visit her property too.
