that I have inherited lately, this
loan oak stool was among the lot.
She was ok like she was, but
I could see some fun potential
in her. So out came the paint
I would probably not do a huge area
in a busy, bright print like this spring
green chevron. But a sunny spot in my
kitchen longed for something sassy
and not too serious. I debated between
yellow, aqua and green. The green won,
and I love how it turned out. I have two
more outdated kitchen stools in the garage
that will be next on my radar.
I used an heirloom white spray paint, and
covered the entire stool with two good coats.
I let the stool dry overnight, then using
masking tape and scissors, I taped out
my chevron design. I started in the center
of the stool and worked my way out from there.
This made it a lot easier to follow the pattern
to the top and bottom of the seat.
I used three coats of spring green acrylic
craft paint and a sponge pouncer to apply
the green chevron stripes. Once they were
completely dry, I removed the tape
and used a course sandpaper all over,
more heavily in some areas.
The areas of the stool that were already worn
and the original varnish was cracked,
I used a light coat of matte polyurethane
sealer on the seat and voila!
My green chevron gal is in her
happy, sunny new spot.
see you back here tonight at 5pm PST
for the Pretty Things Link Party!!
