We made it to November! Already! The air is finally cooler around here, especially in the mornings and evenings and we have finally been getting some rain. It has been so wonderful! Fall also brings back memories of the sound of the chainsaw as my dad trimmed the trees in the yard. My sister and I would build a fort with the cut branches. Of course, it only lasted a day. My dad would cut the branches up and cart them off!
I found these metal medallions a few weeks ago at the local Goodwill and snatched them up. I knew (for once) just what I wanted to try. I had found some chalk paint at Walmart made by Waverly and wanted to see how well it worked.
I painted each one with the white chalk paint and painted two coats.
Once the paint was dry, I used Waverly Antique Wax.
I put just a little on a rag, wiping some off on the paper I had down to protect the floor
Then I lightly rubbed it all over the raised surfaces of the metal medallion. I also went around the edges.
Here are all three!
I like how each one is a little different and I really like how they turned out! I had never used the antiquing method before, but it looks great.
I am giving you a little sneak peek at my faux fireplace! It should be done this week and then I will be able to show it off!
I hope you all had a safe and happy Halloween! I will be back next time with the faux fireplace reveal!!
