Hi, my sweet friends!!
It’s been a busy and crazy week, which is quite common lately… but I wanted to share a stool I found curbside and was asking for a change. I’m in love with everything related to the sea: compass, anchor, rope, shells, there’s nothing I don’t like! And I had been lately thinking about doing something related to it, so I thought it would be great to use for that.
It wasn’t in good shape, I removed the veneer at the bottom and painted the whole thing white.
Once it was all painted and fixed, I had to decide what to do. I chose to use a compass, a vintage compass to be precise. You can get the full resolution image here.
The process was very simple, I transferred the image using ModPodge. If you are not familiar with this technique you can find a graphic tutorial here. Then I took some brown shoe polish and a piece of foam. I rubbed the shoe polish and tapped the borders and the legs to age it.
I also tapped softly on the top.
Then I applied some barnish to protect it, and it was done! What can I say, I simply love it?
