Its so funny what a little paint can do isn’t it?
I have had these cute perfect little stools for some time now, they have survived 2 moves and a kitchen reno, they are comfy and the perfect height. But they were a bit blah don’t you think? I decided it was time to have some painted stools in the house!
They were “bugging” me
(almost as much as the blurry picture – sorry)
So, I did what any normal paint nerd would do.
While chopping veggies for spaghetti sauce one night I popped them on the counter and painted them
Right there..right then.
My family is used to this – no questions are asked when they come home and vegetables are piled up on one side of the sink, wet paint brushes on the other and old red stools on the counter
They don’t even notice anymore – ha
I wanted red stools. Red Barchetta from FAT Paint was it.
I wiped the stools down (I may or may not have used the kitchen dish cloth – I will never tell)
I slapped on the paint – literally – I’m a messy painter, I like quick and fast paint jobs
After one coat the black was showing through, but I liked it, so I impatiently waited for 15 minutes (and chopped some veggies for my sauce) and applied a second light coat and voila!
Red painted stools!
I waxed them with 2 coats of clear wax and then buffed them to put a bit of a shine
Awhile later, my family ate spaghetti sauce sitting on 2 new red stools…they may or may not have even noticed they were red, and they may or may not have noticed the spaghetti sauce full of veggies!
(Not the most observant group here – sorry guys – I luv’s ya)
I think they pop now – my 2 new red painted stools!
I did these stools awhile ago and am just now getting to posting about them, they get A LOT of wear and the paint holds up perfect as does the wax! What do you think? Like the red?
