I had a little footstool I got at the Elkhorn Flea Market (Wisconsin, of course) last year that I've been wanting to refinish.
This is how it looked originally:
With this type of paint, you don't need to sand or prime. Just make sure the piece is clean.
Then I had to decide on the foot part. I debated whether to use a couple of orphan blocks or some exotic tapestry and opted for a piece of fabric I had in my stash. I love it! And it matches too! What a concept!
I'm NOT giving it my son who is getting married soon! I keep my stool at the base of my little couch I relax on.
Now I was on a roll! I have an older Adirondack chair on my porch that has needed a new paint job. It was a faded yellow-- no more!!
Still had some extra paint so got Ryan to help paint my mailbox!
Here he and Emma are waiting for the trick or treaters at Halloween. I found a great new seat cushion at IKEA which matches perfectly! Another successful project completed!
I'm trying to be a better blogger!!
What a great footstool makeover, Randy!ReplyDelete
And I love the shot of Ryan and Emma waiting for the trick-or-treaters. Looks like they couldn't come fast enough! : )
That footstool came out great. And so did the chair. I have been seeing that paint on Pinterest. Do you have to seal it with anything?ReplyDelete
I love that he is out painting the mailbox in his shorts! Your projects turned out really cute!ReplyDelete
I love using chalk paint--your projects look great!ReplyDelete

The foot stool came out great! and I love that fabric a great match with the paint! cheersReplyDelete
