A Nautical Stool Makeover

A Vintage stool get's a nautical makeover today.




A coat of white chalk paint, then Duck Egg on the seat. 

On the bottom of the legs I painted more Duck Egg for a "dipped" look.


I hand painted an anchor silhouette on the seat 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 purchased by a Navy man

who was so happy to find a stool with an anchor!)

  3. Love this Susan.
    I see a lot of the dipped leg effect on Pinterest.
    Nautical seems to be the "In thing" in my area.
    Thanks for sharing.

  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!

  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.
