Coral & White Stool Makeover {Easy DIY}


Hey y'all! And a happy Monday to you! We're starting this week off with a really simple DIY project that has a big impact. Never underestimate the power of paint. As the old saying goes, a little paint can cover a multitude of design sins.

Wait, I think I made that up, but let's go with it, mmk? :)

Back when I was a wee DIYer - we're talking middle school here - I painted this stool for my parents' kitchen. At the time, I thought the pattern was so chic. Can't you see my awesome design and painting skills at work here?


Raw talent, y'all.

Well, about 10 years later, my mom and I decided that maybe, just maybe, it was time for a little upgrade especially since the stool no longer lives in my parents' kitchen, but at the river house, and that yellow and blue color scheme (let alone the pattern) doesn't fit the house's "look." They've got more of an aqua, white and coral scheme going there.

So I got to work updating this little stool. I used a low grit sand paper on the seat to remove some of the bright colors and pattern, and I lightly sanded the legs to rough them up a little. You can't really tell from the photos, but the white legs were pretty dingy, so I primed the whole thing in white (two coats on the seat, one on the legs) to give it a fresh start.


Then it was time to add a pop of color. After taking a poll of the crowd we had down at the river last weekend, the consensus was to paint just the seat coral and leave the rest white. So I used the same coral I had on hand from my coral and gray dipped side table for this project. (It's Valspar "Sonora Rose" in case you're curious.) It took two quick coats to get a nice solid coral color.


Perfect! I love its clean but fun look. See? Told you paint covers up a multitude of design sins :). This project probably took about 2 hours including drying time in between paint coats. It's something anyone could easily do in an afternoon for nearly $0 if you have a little extra paint laying around.

Now for the really fun part. Since this newly painted stool fit in so nicely with a big ole painting my mom had at the house, I wanted to photograph them together. But I needed a little something extra to style it with since it would be a little sad-looking to just have a stool and a painting all by themselves.

I typically like to have something living in photos, which usually means flowers or a plant, but this time, I went with an even better accessory - Jackson! (Thanks to my sister-in-law's dad for that idea!) After a little coaxing (and a lot of "stay...stay..." commands), we got him to sit right on the stool:


He fits in perfectly, doesn't he? Ha!


Smile for the camera, buddy!


What a good boy. Don't worry, we gave him lots of love and a treat as a reward for being such a good accessory :).

So that was my main project for the weekend. Nothing like an easy DIY to kick off the week! What did y'all do this weekend? Any fun projects?
