I’ve had a bunch of bar stools to work on lately – for some reason I liked them and they were the right price, so I decided to grab them all
These ones were my first sale at my last market, along with a lovely little green table. I love how the top turned out, rustic and worn, just the way I like it! I was in the process of sanding the old paint off when I decided I like the way they looked just the way they were! The blue and cream underneath looked great with the dark wood, so I smoothed it down and gave it a coat of wax.
The next ones started out as a bit of an experiment that didn’t go the way I had originally planned, so they’ve had a makeover and a half. I haven’t waxed them yet, as I’m thinking that I’d like them with REALLY heavy distressing. I went with the same walnut stain as the ones above, and the same distressed look for the legs, just in a much brighter colour. Sometimes I need a pop of colour, makes me happy
I also completely missed Thrifty Thursday last week – I’ve been running round like a headless chook doing every sort of nothing. Do you ever have those sorts of weeks? Lots of starts but nothing finished. This week I will be better – promise. AND I have a couple of really great finds to share, and my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint project to finish!!!
Thanks for stopping by…
