Bar stool makeover

I know I promised a picture of the little side table, but I am really excited over these bar stools I made over. We have had these for our own use for 10 years. Honestly I was getting bored with them and wanted to buy new ones.

With the new Annie Sloan paint and waxes, I think they are worthy of staying! I am tempted, but I have to build the inventory for The Vintage Carnival coming up.

Boring stools-before

The honey oak wood colors are looking a little dated. My house needs a little makeover too.The stools blend right in with the floor. Where does one start and the other end!?

Here is the finished, ultra cute bar stools. I have four total, I know they will be a hit!

These were so much fun and turned out adorable!

Until next time…off to bed. Nicole

Delivery! Using chalk paint and wax finish for the first time.

Good evening! I received my delivery from Perfectly Imperfect, unfortunately, I didn’t get home from the son’s football game until 8 pm to try it out. That will have to be tomorrow night’s goal. I’ll be thinking of that project all day, it should get me through the regular work day though. I had some encouragement from a couple of friends today, they thought I would be good at the vintage decor business. I can see it all laid out in my head how I want it to work. Reality is getting in my way. Things like health insurance, eh, who needs that anyway!?

Back to the shipment;

 So I got Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint in Cream:

This is my first TARGET project, a nice easy one to start.

(And, if I screw it up too bad, it’s a pretty simple piece to refinish)

SO I will update you tonight on the projects. See ya!!
