Beachy Striped Stool

I found this wooden stool at a garage sale and fell in love with the detail on the legs. I had to have it, and as soon as I brought it home I went to work transforming it.

I painted it a soft cream and added some blue stripes in a random design across the seat for some interest and to give it a bit of a beachy/cottage feel. I distressed it and topped everything off with a coat of wax for a buttery finish.

When it was finished I loved it so much I tried to find a spot in our house that it would fit, just so I could have an excuse to keep it. I did price it and bring it into the store, but I admit I was hoping that it wouldn't sell so that after a while I could bring it home and try to make it work somewhere. But it wasn't meant to be - it sold right away! I was a little sad to let this one go, but I am happy that someone else saw it and loved it enough to take it home with them!

And there's always more garage sales . . .
