Fall Wreath and Porch Decor

My front porch is now fully decorated for Fall. I started with the diy lit pumpkin topiaries, then painted the exterior doors black. The grapevine overhead light is suspended over the porch. The fall wreaths with natural and faux elements are hung on the doors. The final touches are colorful mums and blue moon pumpkins.

Transforming a wood armoire into a painted treasure!

I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for this project. The first 2 coats were French Linen, then a thinned coat of Old White. I mixed clear and dark wax with a little French Linen paint and waxed the entire piece. I painted the hardware with Graphite and waxed.
