I have a stool that a I use all the time due to the fact that I can't reach my upper cabinets. My brother gave it to me when he was in high school so I have always kept it. This is how it looked until yesterday..
A sad looking little stool, useful but sad.
Then I made some chalk paint (which I am thrilled about and will tell about in another post) and turned it blue. Next to white, blue is the color that makes me happy. Then after seeing the technique on Nate, I laid out some lace, put temporary glue on the back and than smoothed it out on the stool.
|I used a piece of this very old lace, that has a little stretch to it|
Then I sprayed painted over the lace with white, removed it, and had this beautiful little stepping stool.
I am so happy with this pretty little stool now...and I like this technique so much I am thinking of doing it on my coffee table. Chantel woke up in the middle of the night and saw the stool and yawning said to me, "Well you must be pretty proud of that one" which is her 13 year old way of saying she likes it.
