After three failed attempts at creating an ombre wall in my office, I’m rethinking that plan. I really want to do it, but I only have so much paint and time and patience. It’s way harder than I thought it would be, but I’m not quite ready to give up yet. I have another method to try, and I REALLY hope it works!
So no ombre walls to show you today, but I did paint some pumpkins.
And one of them has a sort of ombre effect…
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Provence, Paris Grey, and French Linen. Some got a whitewash treatment with Old White, and one got waxed – then I realized that rubbing on the wax was rubbing off the paint – DOH! – so I skipped the wax on the rest of them.
I wrapped the stems with jute twine and added some shells and shell pieces from PEI to give them a coastal vibe.
So not the ombre walls I wanted to get done on the weekend, but at least painting pumpkins is crossed off the to-do list :-)
Have you ever tried to paint an ombre wall, or anything else? If you have, I’d love to hear how you did it!
Thank you Heather at Setting for Four for featuring my pumpkins on her blog :-)
