I purchased these two little cuties for $15.00…..$7.50 each…… on CL.
Can you believe that somebody paid this much for them brand new?
I would never?
There is no way I would have paid that for these stools.
I needed a couple more items for today’s run to the consignment store….because guess what???
My stuff has been selling really well on Craigslist! Yay!
And because I want to give you guys my honest, unpaid, non-advertising opinion on chalk paint……
I used a my old Valspar sample to re-do these two stools.
These are the products I used.
I love this Valspar sample color so much that I am going to take it back to Lowes to get it matched.
Whadda’ think about that?
I may have to pay full price of $2.94. Think they would match the clearance price?
I have finally finished this sample.
I have done so many projects with this ONE $1.25 sample….but I will save that for my chalk paint opinion post.
I unscrewed the seats from the stools.
Would you believe that the first time I ever did a chair with a woven seat….I didn’t know it could be unscrewed and pried it off from the chair. Denting the chair…stripping the screw from the seat….
Would you believe that wasn’t that long ago and was on my dining room table?
I know……I’ve come a long way baby……….
I have SO much farther to go.
But….unscrew your seats…..makes painting easier.
I stained and distressed and show you how I do this technique in my “table reveal tutorials” posts.
I only lightly sanded these chairs and really wish I would have primed them as the paint wanted to peel when I was distressing.
The photo on the left was taken before the paste process.
Turned out pretty and different, didn’t they?
I am going today to drop off my first batch to the consignment store!
Wish me luck.
It will feel nice to get my garage projects out of there…..
And make room for new projects.
Do you like this color green?
I believe it is similar to what is called “celery”….
Not a big fan of celery.
Unless it’s really, really fresh and drowned in blue cheese.
But on furniture….
I love it.
