As summer grinds to a halt, many of us are still remembering those dreamy, lazy afternoons with picture-perfect sunsets.
Your summer didn't quite look like that either? We understand. But that's exactly the imagery that's conjured up in our minds when we look at the FolkArt Acrylic Paint in Prairie Sunset
, our August color of the month. Its rich, thick, creamy texture with consistent peachy pigments is exactly the stuff summer dreams are made of. Here we've highlighted a few projects that you can make yourself or get inspired to try something different.
Hand Painted Boxes
This trio of hand painted boxes are great for display as a stacked set or can be placed anywhere you need cute, but effective storage like a closet, foyer or night stand. Grab the instructions and supply list
for the white box, ombre box and hexagon box.
If you have thrift store or yard sale find that you want to transform, this is the perfect project to execute. A shabby table could be the next elegant piece in your living or bedroom with a fresh coat of paint and new hardware to complement your room's decor. See a detailed list of supplies and instructions
Add a touch of modern to your space with a simple, yet beautiful stenciled wall art piece. This is so easy to create and really helps to visually tie a room together. All you need is a blank canvas and a FolkArt Stencil pack! It doesn't get much easier than that. See instructions and supplies
We hope you enjoy making these projects and incorporating Prairie Sunset, our Color of the Month, in your living spaces.

Decorating with FolkArt paints means you'll get smooth brushability on a wide variety of surfaces such as wood, canvas, tin, or terracotta.
