Plant Stool Makeover

This post it’s about a poor unloved plant stool that my mother has.  

Last year when I visited her it was sitting out on the back porch and I kept telling her it would be so cute if she painted it.

When she saw my step stool makeover that was awaiting her when she came to visit, she asked me if I could do something with her unloved  plant stool.

Fortunately, I had received a large shipment of transfers that I had mailed to her house while I was there, so I had the perfect transfer for her plant stool.

She gave it a few coats of paint that she already had.

I only used the bottom part of the Fresh Flowers transfer.

Looking forward to using the top transfer as well!

After waxing the stool, I applied the transfer and made sure there were no bubbles.

Bubbles are your worst enemy!

I didn’t pack my tripod so I couldn’t take any photos of me chalking, but I used Bright White and Eucalyptus chalk paste.

Here’s how it turned out. It has an ombre effect.

She really liked it.  I hope she’ll enjoy using it once she gets back home.

When I got back home, I used the same transfer on the galvanized bucket I shared in a thrifting Thursday and also on an enamel pot that I already had.

  1. These are really cute but I have a question, you waxed BEFORE you applied and chalked the stencil? So that would make it NOT permanent right?

  2. I love all of them, Angie! Especially the enamel pot. I think I may have one of those pots! So you think the chalk couture stencil images are more durable than regular stencilling with other types of paints?

    Beautiful stool! I’d rather set a small person on that than a planter that might spoil the image! Your stenciling is perfect. I love the dark blue paint on the stool. I love all the buckets and I spotted the blue enamel pot with the stenciling on the front. Cool idea! I just planted 2 red petunias in a blue enamel pot and now I see how much more beautiful it will be if I stencil on it . Hmmm, wonder if I can do that without removing the dirt and plants???
