This year I wanted some more pumpkins and gourds but I wanted to have a more neutral display with them. I went up to the dollar store and gathered about five small ones and brought them home and got to work!
I used everything I had on hand- some Annie Sloan Chalk paint in French Linen, Duck Egg, and Pure White and some dark wax. This was a pretty easy project- just painted them some different colors and then put a very small amount of dark wax on them and to add some more pretty I just put a little rub and buff on the stems!
After they were all dry I sprayed them with an acrylic sealer that gave them a little shine and voila! I love them- simple- but festive....
I may as well tell you that I also got antsy for the ten minutes of dry time and decided to paint a couple of picture frames that were a bit blah to me... basically because they were holding still... I love quick little make-overs!
I also threw together a simple fall table setting- but because this is our do homework, eat at, sleep on, paint on, saw on, kind of table- it can't be much! But I saw this throw rug at Ikea for next to nothing and loved the colors and texture it brought it- and why would I put it on the floor? Rugs on floors are for amateurs! ;) and a simple wheat arrangement with some corks I had, made a pretty easy center piece.
And here are some more pretties- for now my pumpkins are in a cloche- and you can see a sneak peak of the hutch- I will be ready to show y'all that this next week!
Happy Fall Y'all!
