Stripey Stool

Just a little “after” project to show you today….the “before” is not to be found!

I darkened this cute little stool with some antique walnut stain, and then used a little homemade chalk paint to “embellish” it a little.

Of course I sanded off some of the paint to make it look it’s age!

I guess it could be a flower stand or a little end table…

But you know what?  I wish I had kept it for my shop!


Maybe I’ll luck out and find another cool stool for there someday!

It looks great with both the wood and the paint - of course "aged". Every time I "age" something my kids are like "you missed a spot mom". eyes rolling
