Chandie Footstool

This footstool received my "Old World" finish, and a "Splendid Transfer" onto grain sack.




Here is where we started.



I had a vision for it immediately.  I applied shades of grey paint, and white gesso.  I used wax to seal the finish.  The grain sack received a chandelier transfer.  The stripes compliment the paint finish.




On to the next project.

You did an excellent job on this stool's make-over. I am considering this color for a chair make-over. Definitely one of my choices now.

Just amazing that that poor stool actually started out ugly and then was transformed into pure beauty. Something I marvel at.
