Chippy Stool


I continue to have this thing about stools and I found this one at the Flea Market and had to have it. 
Before:
I wanted it chippy and aged so pulled out some MMS milk paint and did a random mixing of Blues and Ironstone.  I waxed the stool a little bit since it was dry wood and wanted chippiness.  After a few coats of paint I scraped the flakes off and sealed it with clear wax.

What's not to love about a cute stool?

  3. Darrielle, I so agreeeee!
    What's not to love here with your stool? I too have a stool thing, went to purchase one under $5.00 at goodwill....solid oak very cute, barstoolish and what sweet heavy delicate legs to it. Different then most oak stools, my daughter said mom we have enough, I don't want one next to my bed as a night stand lets do something different to the room....I can so kick myself for not getting it, I so know it would have painted up amazingly.

    You now have me even wishing more that I would have bought it? What was I thinking?
    Thank you for now adding that kick in the rear for not getting the stool, you would have loved it as well.
