|Provence Stool (After)|
The other week, I had the fun job of working on these stools for a client. She had three stools which she picked up at a big box store and after a few children, some moves and some wear and tear, well, the stools just need a little pick me up.
Here is what they looked like before:
My client’s kitchen was a sunny yellow with white country cabinets. Hanging on the wall was a sweet little illustration of children playing in galvanized bucket. I think it was probably from the 1940s. It was so cute and I wish I could find it on the internet to share with you. The bucket was nearly a direct match to Annie Sloan’s lovely jewel-toned, Provence.
I painted the seats in ASPC Graphite to match the rest of the chair and then two coats of Provence. I then distressed to make them look shabby chic and sealed them with Annie Sloan’s clear wax and buffed.
Here’s how the stools turned out:
