Just a couple of quickie projects to share with you today. First, this darling stool. I purchased this from the same gal I bought my giant hutch from. When I picked up the hutch, she happened to mention that she had a couple of other things for sale. I picked out this little stool because I thought it would be super cute painted.
I wanted to go chippy on this one, so I used Miss Mustard Seed milk paint. I mixed some Kitchen Scale and some Eulalie’s Sky, then added a little Linen to lighten it up some more. Sorry, I didn’t keep track of exact ratios, I just kept adding a little of each thing until I got a color I liked.
Once again though, I had to use my tape trick to get some chipping.
The height of the seat on this stool would make it perfect as a small bedside table.
Next up, this industrial hanging light.
When I bought this, it had some ancient wiring in place. It looked pretty scary to me, so I removed it. I added a swag light kit from World Market which just happened to fit perfectly!
I decided to paint the inside of the lamp with Fusion’s Inglenook. I think it will make a pretty pop of color when you catch a glimpse of it.
I just realized that a perfect combo would be using the stool as a bedside table, and then hanging this lamp above it. I wish I’d thought of that before I sent both of these items off to Eye Candy ReFind!
