Good thing about being “iced” in with bad weather? I get some painting done!
One of my very most favoritest ( yeah, I know it isn’t a real word!) things to do is to paint children’s furniture – right behind designing and mural painting in children’s rooms. So when my sweet friend Laura brought me an old kids chair& step stool I was a little surprised that I wasn’t sure what to do with it…
This is what it looked like AFTER I sanded. A lot. It had a lot of paint splatters and the back had a hand painted country design that had to go. A little spray paint in a light turquoise, a little distressing on the edges and it was ready for me to hand paint a design. Woo Hoo!
Not a bad After! This is a neat little piece. Not only is it a sweet chair….
but the back folds down and becomes a stepping stool! So sweet!
A picture of the side…. love little bugs.
Another view with the back in the down position.
I think it would be great with an initial painted on the back inside of the heart. Or even a vinyl initial…
I really do love painting children’s furniture. It is always so happy!
This chair/stepping stool is for sale in the shop on the blog. If you are interested… take a look!
Until next time…
