I couldn't believe my luck while perusing Goodwill several weeks ago, I happened upon a pretty little garden stool. A garden stool has always been on my want list, but some of the prices of them are cray-cray...so I practically ran when I spied this one.
It wasn't the color I would have chosen, but if you are here reading, you know of my love of spray paint-heck, your love of spray paint-we have that in common I'm sure. I liked the unique style as well, so no chips or cracks and this baby came home with me.
As with EVERYTHING I spray paint...clean metal primer is what I use as a base. I let it cure overnight.
This botanical canvas from Ikea became my inspiration as soon as I hung it, so my color choice was pretty easy.
I used 'Meadow Green' from Rustoleum and I really liked the finish. I typically use Krylon, but I decided to try something new this time. I barely used the whole can even with the three coats it took for total coverage.
Once it was totally cured (it's sooo important to be patient with the painting process) I brought it inside to use as a little accent table next to our charcoal chair.
I did some foo-fooing, of course, but in reality, it will remain empty to actually be used.
I love, love, love how it turned out and really excited how the bold green is looking.
As you know, Emerald is the color of the year for 2013 and leave it to me to wait until practically the end of the year to incorporate it! Have you used Emerald some way in your home?
I will be sharing my Fall Mantel with you tomorrow, see you then!
