Well, I finally managed to give my stools a facelift and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I know it’s just a little project. but it makes such a huge impact. If you remember, here’s how we started.
Now, they weren’t terrible, but that’s way too much natural wood to my liking. As I mentioned earlier, my final decision was to paint these stools white. Because of all their weird nooks and crannies, I knew it was going to be a challenge. Initially, I tried spray paint, but that did not work out well. The wood just soaked up the paint and I got no coverage whatsoever.
It’s super durable, comes in extra high gloss and is specially designed with Glidden’s Gel-Flow Technology to help eliminate drips and brush marks. It was exactly what I needed for the stools.
As you can see, the paint is incredibly thick and wonderful.
In the past, I avoided oil-based paint even though I know it’s much more durable. With this project, however, I took the risk and dived into this paint fearlessly. I’m so glad I did. While it took a little longer to get things cleaned up, the results clearly speak for themselves.
My stools look so happy and new with their fresh coat of paint.
The finish is nothing short of perfect. The extra high gloss looks great and works so well with other pieces in the space.And even though the stools had lots of nicks and scratches, most were covered or masked by the paint.
I also have a feeling these are going to be much more durable now. Unlike the previous finish, the new paint seems like it will stand up to regular use.
I seriously couldn’t be more pleased. Originally, I was going to do some sort of dipped gold treatment to the bottom of these stools, but I’m liking the white so much, I may not go down that road. What do you think?
In other news, you’ll notice I have a different Christmas tree in my office. My vintage-inspired tree has been moved to the dining room and this space has a new tree which I’m hoping to get decorated tomorrow before stuffing my face with food.
Speaking of tomorrow, I want to wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving! I’ll meet you back here on Friday!
