A Shabby Little Stool

This little stool found it's way to our house quite awhile ago. I started to re-furbish it but only got as far as sanding it down. It was originally finished with a dull brown paint.

Somehow this was as far as it got, then it was buried in with a lot of other works in progress.

When I re-found it last week, added a little paint and stain, a new shabby little stool was born.

I first stained the whole stool with Minwax Provincial.

Then I sanded lightly to have some bare spots again.

The top was painted with an off-white leftover paint.

And the bottom and legs were painted with my
never ending green paint supply. 

One more sanding and another coat of stain that I applied and then wiped off almost immediately
gives this little stool it's final shabby look. 

It's a little stool 24 x 20 x 8, but big on style.

View of the top.

And the sides before and after.

I did give the stool a top coat of poly semi-gloss
just to give it a little protection.

Not to shabby, don't you think??

OK maybe just a little.

Enjoy your week!!

Thanks for stopping by,
