About a year ago, I bought this awesome vintage kitchen stool from my friend Amy (at All Things Home) when she had her barn sale. I brought it home and immediately took it to our building where we have all our belongings in storage til we finish our house. Its been sitting there waiting for me....
Every time I stop by our storage building, I look at the stool! Finally, I brought it back with me to the house and in between laying tile in the bathrooms, painting on the stair risers, and helping Eldon with things I decided to redo this little stool.
I used my awesome Frog Tape (yes, they should pay me for all the plugs I've given them this year!) to tape off all the places I didn't want the silver spray paint to hit. I also sanded some of the rust spots a bit before spraying it with Rustoleum Silver Metallic.
I removed all the tape and then prepped it to tape up the silver legs so that I didn't get the red on the silver. Yes, red. Bet you didn't have to think that one through too long huh?
I guess you're not too surprised to know that my very all-time favorite paint is the Annie Sloan Emporers Silk with the clear wax! I love that look. Here it is all spiffed up in red!
I scrubbed and scrubbed on the black rubber foot pads and they are shiny and new looking now too.
I absolutely adore it. I have a feeling my grand-daughters are going to be fighting over who gets to sit on it! I'm so anxious to find a perfect little spot for it in my kitchen.
Oh, speaking of my kitchen.....
I stopped by the cabinet shop on Tuesday and my cabinets were painted! They are supposed to be delivered first thing tomorrow morning. I'm beyond excited!
So, can't you just see this darling red stool in my white cabinet kitchen with my pretty red pendant barn lights?! Its all coming together - in my mind at least!
