Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Pumpkins

I love all of the dollar store pumpkin makeovers I’ve been seeing across blogland! And today I have another one to add to the line-up: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Pumpkins! Have you heard of Annie Sloan? I’ve been wanting to use her chalk paint on many different projects for some time now, and I finally made a couple of trips to Green Table Gifts (thanks to the tip Liz from Blue Eyed Owl) to pick up the paint and the sought after clear wax. Now I do have some furniture projects in mind, but I thought it would be fun to get a little practice in with these pumpkins. And honestly, the pumpkins look 150% better white, where I have them up in the house! And here’s how they turned out.

So, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Pumpkins – what do you think? It was a great starter project and the pumpkins I can use for YEARS with their neutral coloring. I can’t wait to use this paint on so many more projects. You’ve been warned!

  21. Great job! My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
