Hi all!! I really love a good furniture makeover, so every time I am driving and pass through any bin I turn my head to check if there is something I can collect. I am not the only one doing that, right?
Well, one of those days I found this stool. I stopped the car, open the trunk which thankfully was empty and got the stool. Someone had tried to paint it with little success, it was full with woodworm and the seat needed a change. Only that? No problem, easy job.
I took everything off, treated the woodworm hole by hole and left it wrapped in a plastic bag for 40 days. I know, that is the worst part of a project involving bugs… if I wasn’t so impatient there would be no problem. The day 41 I unwrapped it and painted it with chalk paint (this time the original Annie Sloan). I had a beautiful piece of fabric I bought some time ago, and I used it to upholster it.
This is the new one. What do you think? Do you like it?
