Thrift Store Makeover

I LOVE thrifting! I could do it all day every day AND my love for painting makes this a marriage in heaven Lol

Bar stools are a great addition to the home and not just for sitting on.  I am keeping this stool.....well it's actually my sister who wants it.  She keeps it beside her chair in the living room as a side table.


In the video's I show you how to "wet distress" to achieve this chippy look......and OMG its is so easy with DIY Paint because it's clay based!

Below is a list of paint colours I used and the 3 video I did on Facebook LIVE.

This is a custom colour I created using 


Sea Glass                            Old 57                              Tarnished pearl

I did not measure it BUT I was say it was 50% 50% of Sea Glass and Old 57 and I added drops of Tarnished Pearl until I got the look I was wanting.

I used Clear Wax and then White Wax to seal it.


Clear Wax.                        White Wax


The stencil I used was from Jami Ray Vintage

You can purchase the paint right here on my site which helps support me and my facebook/ You Tube channels.  You can shop in your own how cool is that!  Just change it from the top of the website.

Thank you so much for your support! I love bringing you new and fun ways to create!
