For months now, I have been wanting a distressed white stool to add to my house, but I wanted something that looked vintage. When I found this one at the thrift store, I knew that was it. Even better, at half off, I got this beauty for only $2.00!!
Here I will show you how easy you can do your own farmhouse stool makeover using just paint & sandpaper.
Farmhouse Stool Makeover Instructions
Step 1: Clean Bar Stool
The first thing I did was give the stool a good cleaning. I simply used water & dish soap for this. Once it’s clean, wipe it down with a fresh towel and let dry.
Step 2: Prepare To Paint
To prep, the only thing I needed to do was lay down a large drop cloth.
Step 3: Spray Paint stool
For this project, I used two coats of this chalk spray paint.
Make sure to follow all the tips and tricks to spray painting so that you don’t have any drips or bubbles.
Step 4: Sand Stool To Distress
Once the stool had dried, it was time to distress it a bit.
This is a very simple process, just take some sandpaper and go over the edges and top little by little.
Keep sanding until you are happy with the way it looks.
Step 5: Enjoy!
Once you are done, go ahead and decorate it or just use it as is.
I love how simple this farmhouse stool makeover was!
I plan to use this stool with my seasonal decor by my fireplace, but who knows where it will end up! There are so many possibilities.
