Do you remember this? It’s a little stool that was my mom’s, it had been down in the basement for a while and before that I had covered it with homespun when I was into prim. So when I started this style (that I love by the way) I covered it with a pink rosebud pillowcase that I had found at an estate sale this past summer. Loved it but I think my taste is moving away (again) from the total shabby chic look to something that I just don’t know what to call. I love Pottery Barn but yet I still love the white furniture and lighter colors so I’m just going to do what I love and see how it looks and just go from there.
Anyway I decided to redo it again only this time with a drop cloth that I bought at Lowe’s for about $5.00 it’s not a real big one, after all I knew I wasn’t going to do a slipcover:) I used black craft paint that I already had and a small paint brush, I like it alot better.
I also used painters tape and made the stripes about a quarter of an inch! Here’s a close up!
I think I’ll paint the legs a Cottage White too because when I spraypainted them last summer it just didn’t take very well.
I have it here sitting on the bench that I’m going to do the same way. Now that I look at this picture I know I’m going to paint the legs soon!
Here is a peek at my new throw from TJMaxx, love the ruffles, I’ve always wanted one and when I saw it, because sometimes that don’t have them, I grabbed it! I also bought slipcovers for the sofa but with Stush being laid up with his knee I haven’t tried them yet.
