We just got home from a lovely week in Arizona but before we left I managed to update our front entrance for fall. All my flowers were done for the season and I wanted to freshen up my door colour since we just had the trim painted.
I can’t even count how many times I have painted my front door but it was starting to stick so I didn’t want to paint it again with regular paint so I decided to paint it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (no wax). I had some left over Chateau Gray from the Potting Bench I painted (see post here) and so I thought why not use that! Because I used chalk paint the door now doesn’t stick.
Here is the BEFORE picture and you can see that my flowers have seen better days 🙂
and here is my front entry AFTER
I painted some faux pumpkins from Michaels with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Antique White and some in the Chateau Gray and added some dark wax in random spots. The smaller pumpkins I found at Wallmart for $1 each. I painted the outdoor mat with spray paint and used tape to make the stripes. Can you see the paint bubbles….we need to have our painter sand down and painted again. But that can wait till spring, it’s too cold now.
I also painted the hardware with Rust-Oleum spray paint in Oil Rubbed Bronze to freshen it up. And I made the wreath with a few dried hydrangeas mixed with faux hydrangeas I bought at Michaels and used a grape vein wreathe and some burlap for a bow.
I didn’t want to use the traditional oranges and reds for fall and love the creams and greens!
