A Nautical Stool Makeover

6:16:00 AM

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!)

    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.

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