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!)

    Nice dipped legs;)
    Thank ou for sharing, Susan
    Love and hugs

  2. Ooooooooooh, love it! I totally would have grabbed it for my beachy porch!


  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.


  4. That's so cool that it went to a Navy man!

  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.
