This project is an old one (as you can see on the green grass in the first picture), but I thought it would be nice to share. I found a gorgeous looking blue stool in an ad from one of the local furniture stores, and decided to do something similiar.
The below stool is something Darling has had for ages, but it's worn and torn and doesnt really fit in the house. I rescued it from the storage room and painted it blue, simply beeing more gentle on the brush on big parts so that it would get a more distressed look. The end result turned out better than expected and the blue adds a nice touch in our white house.
