Hello everyone! I can feel fall in the air, mornings are cooler and it gets dark earlier now, we had a fantastic summer so I guess I have to let it go and look forward to what the autumn season will bring! I know that I’ll be doing a lot of furniture painting in the months to come because I caved, yes, I did and bought some AS Chalkpaint from Robyn Story Designs & Boutique! No, I didn’t buy the quarts but surely will the next time I order, she has a flat shipping rate which I love and with my order I received a official chalkpaint color chart, now for a newbie like me this is great because my next order I’ll know exactly what color I would like right off the bat!
I bought two sample pots and boy, does this paint go along way folks! I ordered Paris Grey and French Linen. Right now I’m using Paris Grey, can you tell, I’m such a messy painter? lol I guess I’m just to anxious to see the final outcome with this paint!
On my first project I wanted to start out with a small piece, so I went with a picture frame I found for a $1.00 that has beadboard backing, at the fleamarket earlier this summer. I had a before picture but deleted it by mistake so just imagine all white with a yellow flower under glass. Here is what it looks like now: I used a black and white photo of Lands End in Cabo that I had taken. I really like the Paris Grey such a true color of gray it is! Where you see the white is where I distressed it a little.
I hung it on a small wall between the diningroom and Kitchen.
I have so fallen in love with AS Chalkpaint, everything you have heard about it is true. The one thing I noticed was how smooth it was and how it covered so well, I even started on my bench that I have at the diningroom table, it just seems like I want to paint everything now. I was such a doubter but now I’m a true believer!
I also brought out my fall wreaths and cut some burlap, that I had left over, and tied strips of it onto my wreath to update it a little.
I saw this great inspiration on a blog but darn, I can’t remember who! Anyway it wasn’t my idea but I loved the look and I think it really updated it don’t you?
