IKEA Vintage Stool Revived


Well used vintage stool made attractive again.

This vintage IKEA stool does not show up in their catalogue or in any searches (except one, in a corner of a room on Pinterest). That was enough incentive for me.




First part of the job (and no before picture taken) was sanding off the old stool top finish. Next was finding a stencil to fit.




The stencil of a Papillon (butterfly) with a wreath (from Michaels) plus CeCe Caldwell Beckley Coal chalk-like paint, some blue masking tape and Martha Stewart 3/4" sponge pouncher were the supplies used for this project. 

Forgot to include this wonderful and very vintage tablecloth with the pink birds (salt and pepper) in my last post.




After stencilling and drying overnight I gave the stool 2 coats of Varathane Crystal Clear Water Based, drying between coats.




The water based Varathane was an easy 'brush' cleanup with soap and water.


I took the stool over to my booth on Monday.





Thanks for visiting today.

  6. Well done! I had a yellow stool much like this when I taught school. I used it to sit on at the front of the glass when I needed to write on the overhead projector. Funny what sparks a memory!
    Thanks for sharing. Love the stecil you used.
