Sadly I don't have an endless budget nor enough storage space to house a variety of furniture items to change around at will. So to get my fix rather than buying more I find changing the colour of my existing items fixes my fancy!. The victims this week were my vintage garden stools, each receiving a coat of deep gloss white paint.... the result was exactly what I was after, something fresh and airy to kick off spring!.
Thinking I am going to paint my metal letterpress cabinet white as well ... I like the look of rustic matte white painted surfaces mixed with aged wood ... currently I'm trying convince my husband that we should paint our vintage industrial TV cabinet as well - it's red and large, the room is not and I'm not sure how I feel about red feature items at the moment??? I love a touch of red but this red really takes over!!!!
Ideally I would love an unusual Danish credenza, something really tricky with some lattice like decoration on the front of the drawers but the beauty of our current cabinet is that is holds everything and anything the storage benefits are endless.
see what I mean? It is a lot of red!
so while I dream of a new cabinet here is my white wash garden stool make over
I did love the retro colours here but I just had to have a change... the varnished colours are still intact underneath should I need to strip them back to their former green mustard tones.
I painted two coats of deep gloss on one stool and one coat on the other as it started to crack a bit even after 48 hours drying time between coats. All up the stools took 4 days to dry.
