So, I was pretty happy with my little "rustic step stool re-do" so I thought I'd try and do another one for the kids bathroom. I'm....ok with the results. I'm not sure if I like it, though....thoughts?
It started out as this...
And after a little sanding and some semi-gloss white spray paint....
I decided to add some more detail to the top. I found some footprints online and traced them onto the stool. I filled them in with some paint I found in the "as-is" bin at Home Depot for $.50! Deal!
Ever try and paint footprints? With all the nice little crevices that come with feet? Yeah, not so easy. I opted for the stencil-look. Hey, I tried! I've said it before...I'm not a painter. Sadly.
Then, I thought I'd use my stencils to outline some fun sayings on the stool. After that was complete, I didn't like all the brush strokes you could see on the words, so I decided to try and sand it down a little. See all that paint that just came right up? What happened?? Ah, well. I covered it all with a nice lacquer to protect it from the little ones feet.
I think it will look pretty nice in our downstairs bathroom.
Have a wonderful day!
