I decided to use paint I had on hand: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and CC Caldwell’s paint in Memphis Blue.
I wanted to kick them up a notch so I decided to stencil the tops. The stencil seen below is actually scrapbook paper from Michael’s. I scooped up this sheet about a year ago and finally put it to good use.
I just laid the scrapbook paper on top of the stool, held it in place with my fingers, and used a trim roller to add the paint.
Once it was dry I added some pink stripes around the edge with a small brush. I didn’t try to be perfect, just let the paint flow….
Mostly because I knew I would distress the entire stool with my sanding block. Since these stools will be in my kid’s room, I know they’re going to get banged up in no time. Why not help start the process.
And the stools are complete! Great to place on her stage while she’s strumming her guitar or acting out a play, or just extra seating for her audience.
