A Nautical Stool

6:16:00 AM

A Vintage stool get's a nautical makeover...

A coat of white chalk paint, then Duck Egg on the seat and
on the bottom of the legs for a "dipped" look...

Then an anchor silhouette followed by a coat of 
clear wax and a coat of dark wax to give the stool an aged look...

Anchors Away!

(This stool was bought by a Navy man
who was so happy to find a stool with an anchor!)

  5. Hey there!!! Catching up on your blog this morning. When I saw this stool, I thought about a blog I follow called Inspiration Avenue. The theme this week is nautical. You out to link this to that party.

    Hope all is well. Have a great week ahead!

  6. HEY IS Shel from Inspiration Ave. Love your stool so perfect and fitting!!!

  7. A wonderful idea to paint an anchor on the stool. The colour of the background is so right, makes me think of battleship grey. I do love the way the anchor rope falls gracefully down to the leg of the stool.

  8. Thanks for sharing your artistic stool! It belongs with a navy man for sure.
