Chippy Stool

My father-in-law gave me this little stool a few months ago. He's always finding this and that to pass on to me - I love it! I absolutely loved the top, so I knew right away it would not be painted.  I decided to start working on it at night, so I brought everything inside. Mistake, see that little dog? He had other plans for my, knocking it over and leaving a nice blue stain on our carpet.


I grabbed this blue paint at an estate sale. What you don't see here is that I painted white over the blue, didn't like it, and painted it back blue.

Come on, I can't be mad at that sweet face!

After heavily distressing the stool, I coated in polycrylic.

I love how this one turned out because it really looks like the paint is chipping off.

And wow, that top. I just love paint splatters. See why I couldn't dare mess with it?

Have you had a pet mishap with a project?
