I’ve just started preparing our dining room sideboard for painting and refinishing. While I was out in the garage working on it, I noticed some other furniture I’d been meaning to paint. Since I was in the zone, I thought I’d tackle those projects too.
Starting with this:
Once upon a time, I’d picked up this unfinished stool at Michaels, although I can’t, for the life of me, remember what I’d planned to do with it. It’s been in the garage for ages, collecting dust and spider webs.
After I evicted the eight legged occupants and gave it a light sanding, I painted it a colour called Tawny Port (Behr). Then, I used Martha Stewart’s metallic craft paint in bronze to achieve the dipped effect. Finally, I covered the seat with crocheted jute twine.
I’m really happy with the way this turned out – it looks great in the corner of our newly painted dining room.
