A Simple Stool

This past weekend was a bit of a challenge for our family but we made it through and I’m looking forward to a great week … God willing!

Two of our 5 children were ill, two were off to a paintball party and the last was babysitting and working at her job …. meanwhile, my sweet husband and I put the finishing touches on a few of my projects in between nursing the two sickyheads ;)

Looks like my booth for the All Things Pretty Market (April 30 and May 1) is going to be very full!  With the days getting closer to this awesome event I find myself getting more and more excited!

I will spend today photographing my latest projects and pre staging my booth for the market to make sure it all fits!

I thought I’d share some pretty photos I took of this sweet simple little stool that I rescued from a neighbor who was just going to throw it away. Sometimes a little color and re imagination is all a piece needs.  I’m currently using this little stool as a side table …

Milk paint, a heavily distressed seat and an antique glaze gives this little stool some primitive charm without overdoing it.

      Thank you Quandie! To be honest I don’t really know … I mixed a bunch of leftover milk paint together and this is what came out. It looks similar to the corner cabinet color though so if you’d like the recipe just look for it in the primitive corner cupboard post. I hope you have a great week!

Loving the perfect simplicity of our Balsam Fir tree 🌲 so fresh and fragrant. We are debating ornaments or leaving it naked... we are leaning towards leaving the as is. Maybe add a tree topper? 🤔🌲 #balsamfir #nakedtrees #fragrant #christmastree #antique #beautifulspaces #homedecor #thecuratorscollection #blanketladder #antiqueradio #cozy #farmhousestyle #fresh
So the table runner garland (which was originally supposed to be a wreath lol) has now become a large swag framing our living/dining area... it just made more sense since the table sees lots of use. Easier for cleaning. I think this works better in the end😉. #happyfriday #christmasdecor #mychristmas #cozy #freshgreens #thecuratorscollection #christmasiscoming #farmhousestyle
I started out intending to make another wreath but ended up with the makings of a table runner lol. I’ll add some more trimmings to it tomorrow. #sidetracked #freshgreens #christmastablescape #christmasdecor #diy #farmhousetable #antique #thecuratorscollection
These chairs ... what do you think? Paint or re-stain the wood? 🤔 #cantdecide #whattodo #antique #homedecor #furnituremakeover #thecuratorscollection
Boughs from the backyard 🌲 It’s not perfect But that’s what I like about it! Now that I’ve figured out what I’m doing the next one should come together easier. #freshcut #christmasdecorations #handmade #christmaswreath #christmasgreens #thecuratorscollection
And it’s finished! I ended up having to make the cushion patchwork style. I Think it gives it a little added character though ;-) feels good to finally get one more item off my to do list! Happy Sunday all! #slipcovers #mystyle #shabbychic #pretty #design #homedecor #thecuratorscollection
