It is a wonderful thing to know that my family and friends totally “get me”. They go about their day and sometimes stop to grab things that they see on the side of the road if they think I can do something with them. This was the case with these two wooden breakfast bar chairs. They were quite heavily scratched and looked as though they had been sitting in a shed for quite a while. They were covered in dust and mud. So brings the tale of the Breakfast Bar Vintage Farmhouse Stool Makeover!

Supplies needed:

From the Raggedy Bits Project Barn

Prep your stools Step 1 – Mix some warm water and sugar soap in a bucket. Using your cloth give both of the stools a really good clean because you want to remove all dirt and dust. Then using rags dry them off.

Step 2 – Because the top of these stools was really badly marked I sanded them all the way back to the pine using my sander and 80 grit sandpaper. Once most of the dings are removed go over with 120 sandpaper to give a nice smooth surface all ready for painting.

Start Painting Step 3 – Using Picket Fence and your brush start painting the stools. Once dry repeat. Depending on how the colour of the stools and how dark they are will depend on how many coats you need. Because these chairs were dark I ended up having to do 3 coats.

Sanding time Step 4 – Once the paint is dry start distress to your liking. Don’t leave the distressing too long with Fusion Mineral Paint because the longer you leave it the more it cures. I always distress within half an hour of the paint drying. If you need some tips on how to distress you can find some handy hints here.

Step 5 – Take your stencil, spouncer and black paint. Lineup and make sure it is in the centre and tape down with magic tape. Stencil on your chosen numbers and let dry. Then lightly distress.

To Finish off Step 6 – Β Take your soft cloth and pour some of the Β Tough Coat onto it and begin wiping onto the stools. This will protect the stools becauseΒ they are sure to get plenty of use!
