Autumn table craft 10 5 blog
Better late than never! Things have been a little hectic around here so I haven’t had much time to throw together an autumn craft …..this is what I came up with! I took a piece of 2” board (unplained-so it is rough) & painted it white (painted in the opposite direction of the grain so it would be distressed looking) . I am just a beginner with these painting techniques so I’m sure it could look a lot better but….this is what I got in 10 min Smile I just noticed as I’m typing that the rug pad on the left corner is showing! Ugh….well, now you know what you can put under the wood to protect your table! I’m thinking this wood piece will be a great hot mat for food. I also put some paint on the logs. I went a little paint crazy! Here is another version for a little change!

I know, I could have finished setting the table but wasn’t planning on using this photo until now! I thought it showed the cool wood tones!

    This turned out really nice Jessica. It has a nice earthy rustic feel to it. I see in the second picture there are really tiny pumpkins in the bowl…where did you find them? I have been wanting some but don't know where to look.

    I love it…you are right very good idea as a mat for hot pots 🙂 and I didnt know that to have a distress look I should paint against the wood grain thx for this tip 🙂
