This beat up old stool and this old school chair have been hanging around our house for years.
It was time to do something with them…
so, I gave them both a good sanding and a couple of coats of flat white paint.
Then I decided they were too stark white.
On the stool I thinned down some gray craft paint with water and used it as a glaze, wiping it off with paper towels until I had the look I wanted.
When it was dry I distressed it a bit with sandpaper.
Then I gave it a good coat of natural color Minwax, buffing it when dry.
I’m loviin’ it!
On the little school chair, after the two coats of white paint were dry,
I glazed it with some burnt umber craft paint watered down, and wiped it down with paper towels.
I left it more heavily glazed than the stool.
Once it was dry, I sanded it to distress it, applied a good coat of Minwax and buffed when dry.
I’m lovin’ it too!
HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE!
