Lindy from Cottage Hill was thrilled when her mom gave her a little step stool that had been built by her father decades before. Lindy’s father has since passed, so she was glad to have this little piece of her parent’s history.
Lindy didn’t want to hide all the layers of paint on the stool but instead reveal them. To achieve the look she wanted, Lindy painted on stripper and left it alone until it was dry. Then she scraped and sanded to allow the various paint colors to show through. Afterwards, Lindy and her mom chatted on the phone about all the layers and places the stool had been. I just love that! The stool now has a prized spot on the countertop.
