Chalk Painted Pumpkins ;-)
Even though Fall is well underway here in the Northwest,
I have not done much decorating for it yet this year.
I decided this weekend that I wanted to put some pumpkins on my mantle.
But I have this problem with mixing color..
I get uncomfortable when I have to many different colors going on in one room.
I know..I need to grow – stretch – expand my horizon.
But not this weekend.. 😉
I decided to try painting one of the real pumpkins I have blue to go with the blues
I have in my living room right now.
I had a sample jar of Annie Sloan’s
Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue, so I decided to give it a try!
For the record, I have never painted vegetables before.
It had never even occurred to me to do so…silly me.
I really love the way they turned out..
I don’t know why pumpkins don’t just come in this color. Seems like an oversight to me.
I am sure that they will begin to shrivel up and look unsightly before long. (As shall I ..)
However, in the meantime – the project cost under a dollar and they make me happy..
Please understand, I am not saying I obtain lifelong joy from my blue pumpkins.
Because that would be silly…
But they do make me smile when I walk by them.
And that is worth a dollar right?
So I have a little bit of my “Fall” on now at the Little Brown House.
I have fake flowers on my door in real flower colors –
And real pumpkins on my mantle in fake pumpkin colors… ;
Sounds like a typical day around here – what about you?
How is your Fall shaping up? 😉
