Sooo...here's one of the three bar stools I started while my three grandchildren were with me for the summer...
All three finished...one stool for each little boy, personalized with my "Grammie names" for them. They liked them!
Much to my amazement, these little stools won a FABULOUS ASCP contest...thanks again to Anne of "House of Anne" for the prizes!
However, summer's over, grandchildren have gone back home to Momma till next year, so it's time for a stool update! When these HANDSOME kidlets come back next summer to visit, we'll refinish other personalized things together.
I used part of this Graphics Fairy image...and some clock hands clip art I had...and recreated two of the three into lunch and dinner stools, with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (Old White of course), glazed with Benjamin Moore Aqua Glaze mixed with some black acrylic paint. I did the image transfers the easiest...and cheapest...way I know how...scribble a charcoal pencil on the reverse of your image, tape it to your receiving surface (scribbled side down) and trace over the image, transferring it to your surface!) I think I LIKE them!
Partying with these fine bloggers.
THIS is what I'm working on next..."Elmer and Faithie..."a love story...circa 1944...will post my re-do by the end of the week.
THANK YOU so MUCH for taking the time to visit today! Every time I see a new comment, it's like opening a little present...so thanks for THOSE too! I'm AMAZED that my puny little blog reached two hundred followers today...four months after I began...thank you SO MUCH, and thank you thank you THANK YOU to Ms Adrianne for featuring these over at
GOSH! Home decor bloggers sure are KIND!!
Wishing you a week filled with the things you love to do, and times with the people you love!
