This plain ol' stool has been supporting the humidifier in my bedroom for a few years. It doesn't go with anything in the room, so I decided it was time for a makeover.
To start: 1. Sand the entire stool. 2. vacuum the stool to clear the dust. 3. wipe the stool with a wet rag to remove any lingering dust. 4. apply base coat of white semi-gloss paint.
The stool dried for approximately an hour before applying a second coat of white to the legs:
Then I applied two coats of teal paint to just the top of the stool:
Allow to dry an hour or so.
I can't believe I had that plain ugly stool for so long before thinking to paint it.
No way is this stool going back under the humidifier! My daughter and I used it for a cute photo shoot last weekend and now it is in her bedroom.
