Chalk Paint on what?

Even though I love red and it’s different degrees of depth, I’ve wanted to lighten things up.

I have these items, similar in texture and color. One Southern Living ($2.99) from Goodwill. The others from some overly priced home decor store made of stone or something of the sort.

DIY – Paint Your Ceramic Pieces

Prepare your pieces, clean with a degreaser detergent.

Choose your chalk paint, paint with one or two coats.

Finish with a clear wax.

And we all know, how I like to reFresh what I already have.

I used Old White.

I didn’t even remove the coffee beans.

I used this little beauty recently for my snow flake demo.

These guys have been hanging out on the dining table, surrounded by dried flowers, sticks and florals left over from recent door decor.

It’s lighter and brighter around here. And I didn’t have to buy anything new, because I’m stocked up on AS Old White paint.

Have a bright and wonderful day!

    I have been doing the same thing, Debbie! It’s amazing what a change one coat of ASCP old white (or any other color) can do! I’m just kicking myself and wishing I had all the stuff I’ve thrown out through the years! Love your decor!

    I like using coffee beans around candles for a fall touch. Great idea to use what you have and get a new look. I am probably the last person that hasn’t painted anything with Chalk paint. I have issues with my hands but it is a great look.

    Gorgeous!!! Love the runner! Not sure what chalk paint is (I live in South Africa) but whatever it is they look stunning! Amazing what a lick of paint can do! Just repainted some garden pots green and they look fab so I know how you’re feeling with your refresh! Wishing you happy Fall even tho it’s Spring here ! lol x

    They look great together. The chalk paint leaves such a nice finish.

    Very nice transformation :) ASCP is the best, I’m in the process of doing the same thing with some of my accessories, love the coffee bean idea.

    I am with you… I have been seeing so many wonderful “non-furniture” make makeovers with the ASCP and I am lovin’ it! I want to pull my can of ASCP old white out and paint everything in sight. ha ha

    PS. I really like your blog design. Easy and simple to navigate and easy on the eyes!!

    Love how you brightened things up! So pretty. I’m on my way to get chalk paint today. I’ve been holding out just b/c I’m not a diy’er but guess I’ll join the club!
