I know I am posting late in the evening, but I have had an awesomely, busy day! Because ot the rainy, wet and cold day here, I have had a great time crafting.
Remember the earlier post about the Corn Hole boards? Well, I am in the process of painting them. And while waiting for the paint to dry, I decided to spruce up this cute little stool.
I acquired this stool from the yard sale that I held at my house for Granny's friend. It doesn't look bad the way it is, but it is a bit dated. The fabric has a vintage 1776 motif and the wood is very dark.
Here is a view from the side. Sorry for the quality. I am using a camera phone. I'm hoping Santa will bring me a nice camera for Christmas.......
I took the cushion off of the stool and recovered it.
I went to http://thegraphicsfairy.com/ and chose a free print from her website. She has so many wonderful prints to choose from.
Here I transferred the print to the fabric.
I then covered the cushion with it.
After covering the cushion, I painted the legs with Annie Sloan Louis Blue. For some reason, I am on a Louie Blue kick. It is a great winter blue color and I plan on using it to do some winter crafts.
After I painted the legs with Louie I dry brushed on some Old White and distressed it some. After that, I added light and dark wax. I love the way it turned out!
I'm not sure what I am going to do with this little guy.
I am bursting with so many ideas about changes in my house.
And I am so excited about sharing them with you!
I hope y'all have a great evening!
