See my three little blue pumpkins in the hutch?
Everyone has been painting pumpkins and gourds and I sure wasn't going to be left out. I had thought about doing this a few weeks ago before even seeing them all over blog land. Well, with the rainy weather keeping me in this week I finally got some done. I used all my chalk paint colors and craft paints that I had on hand.
Here are the
victims plastic pumpkins that I have had stored away in a box.
Yes, my craft table is the kitchen table. I do protect it with a drop cloth.
I used Aubusson blue, Chateau Gray, Old White, and Paris Gray. Today you will only see the blue ones I did and I will share the other colors another time in their display.
This one is Aubusson blue with a copper metallic paint just poured over the top and then it ran down and filled the crevices.
This one is Aubusson blue again and then I used Gold Leaf rub n buff on the top.
I painted this one with Paris Gray first and then dry brushed Aubusson blue over it.
They just set on top of my ironstone sugar bowls for a little fall touch to the hutch.
I think this is the last piece from my trip to Asheville a few weeks ago that I haven't shown you yet.
I found this Red Cliff tureen at the ReStore store. I had never been in a ReStore until I saw this one and had Mr. Savvy pull in for a look. This piece was in a glass cabinet and I asked to look at it. The ladle is missing, but that's okay. It was only $20 and my first piece of Red Cliff. I didn't know it was Red Cliff until I looked at the stamp on the bottom of it.
Here are some more shots of the hutch with some blue pieces added back in.
