When I decorate in my house for Halloween and Thanksgiving, it can be a challenge to create the warm fall feeling without introducing a lot of bright warm colors that would clash with my regular decor. I love the idea of painting pumpkins with white chalk paint because with a little sandpaper, you can still get a hint of that pumpkin orange color without overwhelming your interior aesthetic!
Instead of buying white pumpkins, which are more expensive than regular pumpkins, stock up on some white chalk paint and pumpkin-pie pumpkins, and follow Centsational Girl’s tutorial on painting and distressing pumpkins to get this chic cottage look for fall!
