I want to share how I painted the stool in the powder room. I purchased this stool last year at a flea market for eight dollars. It was just stained wood and covered in scratches. I knew I could improve it.
All I did was brush the Antibes green on all over the stool.
After the green was dry I then just brushed the Arles (yellow) on in different spots here and there. I wanted to create the look of many layers of old paint showing after years of wear and several times of being painted another color.
Then I sanded it heavily in different places that I felt would have worn off over time.
Here you can see the Old Violet and the original wood showing.
The most common spot to get worn are the rungs where most people put their shoes on when sitting on a stool so they were distressed heavier especially the bottom rungs.
After all the sanding I then waxed it with clear and dark waxes and buffed when dry.
Now the stool has the worn farm style look and is serving as a table in its new life.
If you missed the powder room reveal you can see it here.
Have a wonderful weekend!
The sun is finally shining here!
