Number Three Stool

Hi guys!!  It's a great day here in good 'ole Michigan.....sun is shining....and I'm sitting on my deck enjoying summer to the fullest!!  Tomorrow my son and I are headed north to enjoy my parent's cottage which is on a small inland lake....it's the best!  I've been enjoying the summers up there since I was ten and now I get to see my son enjoy it too.  He loves to leave for the lake and hates to come home....We're going for a couple of days and it's supposed to be hot...so there's no better place to be.

I found this little stool at a local garage sale.  I have a thing with stools...they can be used for so many things......plant stands, extra seating, night stands, and etc.  Here's a before picture.
I gave it a coat of primer and then two coats of a light green paint.  I distressed it around the edges and then added a number three to the top of the stool.  Here's the after picture.
Have a great Sunday!  If your reading....ThAnKs!!

  11. LOVE IT!!!! Did you coat it with something when you were finished painting it and put the 3?

    Thanks so much for sharing this at The DIY Dreamer.. From Dream To Reality!

    1. Thanks Christine! I did not coat it with anything yet...however, I'm thinking it could use a coat of poly-acrylic just to protect the number 3.
