Decoration Projects

I recently painted and stained a few home decoration items to put in my booth at Drab 2 Fab. I found someone not far from me that cuts wood projects from reclaimed wood. He was selling these arrows so I bought a few sets and stained some. The others I used ASCP and then gave them a clear wax finish. Easy project and ready to hang on the wall.


I bought this wood basket and wanted to give it a little color.


I started painting it ASCP Arles before I remembered to take a before picture. 😉 That happens a lot! So after a coat of the Arles I added a dry brushed coat of French Linen. Then distress and waxed it with a clear wax. I added Old White to the wax to give it a tint. You can add any color of chalk paint to wax to change up the finish.

Love this cute wood basket! Annie Sloan Arles will always be one of my favorite colors! 🙂


And last, I bought this fun old window that someone had added sheet music to.

The pink was a bubble gum pink and not something that will fit into everyone’s decor so I painted it with Old white and French Linen leaving just a little pink poking through. Then I added a vine wreath and a flower accent.


Annie Sloan Chalk paint goes on everything and is so easy to use! Be creative and find fun things to make your own!


Thanks for taking a look





  1. Hi Cindy! I bought a set of the reclaimed arrows you had at Drab 2 Fab and I would like another set. Do you have anymore or would you be able to make me a set?

    1. Hi Jen, I do have another set in my booth at Drab 2 Fab. Not all of them were exactly alike so if you are looking for a specific finish let me know and I will get another set and finish them for you.
