Flea Market Find - Vintage Multi-Painted Stool
From the many photos in this post you may guess that I am totally in love with this painted stool. Real deal, no chalk paint, no sanding, nothing. I washed it. Took lots of pictures. Learned something new, thanks to Centsational Girl for the tutorial on adding text and an opaque rectangle across a picture using Pixlr (see the first picture below) and Between Naps on the Porch (my favourite place to get for tips and tutorials on blogging, editing, what to do when Picnik disappears etc.) who brought this tutorial to my/blogger attention. Very helpful tutorial.
I took the following pictures outside. The colour is fairly accurate in the first two pictures but the following 'group' of 4 look a bit too blue.
The 'group of 4' show such wonderful age and wear and colour.
The legs have red paint under the yellow with great 'natural' wear.
I love a natural crackle in the paint. Age.
Regular readers will recognize the blue desk with its cast iron bird and Graphic's Fairy egg print as well as the large pie safe (and here) I use as a backdrop for many of my photos and the black and painted flowers on the Crown Ducal vase and this week's flower indulgence on the painted stool.
A final look at that amazing paint layered, crackled and worn top of the stool.
Fun post to take pictures for and write.
Saying hi to my sister.
