Thrift store find,,,Before n After

I came across this cute little stool at the Salvation Army Thrift store a couple weeks ago.  It was the first thing I saw when I walked into the store and I made a bee line for it, I knew all it would need was some white paint love!

It is sold wood and I liked the little detail of the circle on the top. I purchased some van Gogh chalk paint ( Chalk White)  and thought I would give this chalk paint craze a try!  I think it turned out okay for my first attempt!



BEFORE



AFTER



I like how the distressing turned out on the seat, but I am not too sure about the legs?
Check out my niece, Heidi's, blog and her little business venture called Rustic Barnyard.
Here is a link to her Facebook Page 



This little stool will be great for my little niece and nephews when they need to 
stand at the counter to help with "cookin up" something in the kitchen, or as a nice little spot
to rest a coffee cup or book.  I think it is a keeper!

Love it! You did a great job. I may have to look for a little stool like that. My grandkids always pull up a chair to help me make cookies and such. This would work for that purpose.

The stool looks wonderful! Great job. Stools like this are so handy for little ones who want to help.

I love your little stool and the chalk paint came out beautifully. I actually put an old black painted stool by a chair in the living room to sit magazines on or a cup of tea. It was my grammie's from her kitchen so it's special to me. Stool's come in handy for lots of things.

Great job! I thought the stool looked good before but the after is so much better! I have a few projects I will so this spring thanks for the idea.

Hi Dawna, thanks so much for leaving me a comment on my Mudroom. I tried to reply directly to the comment but you came up as a non reply blogger. Thanks...Christine from Little BRags

That really looks good! I think you've done the perfect amount of distressing, and time will add its own patina.

How absolutely darling! I haven't heard about Van Gogh chalk paint. Do tell.
