::Going Green--Step Stool::

Back sometime ago... Angie at Knick of Time Interiors started a THEME FOR THURSDAYS MEME...and one of the earlier ones she did was STEP STOOLS. 

She truly inspires me! 




I absolutely loved the littlest step stool she had in her line up...she painted it and put stripes on it. While I think it looks great with a fresh coat of paint...my inspiration came not just from her painting it; but from the 'original' color as well. 
You'll have to click on the link to see all of her vintage step stools. 



So...of course, I used GREEN. I taped it...I had some of the blue painter's tape; but for the life of me, couldn't find it. I'm thinking maybe someone borrowed it ???  and so,  I no longer HAVE ANY.... either way, my stripes bled under this tape. 

 
So no... they're not perfect.
The step stool started out as a curb-shopped stool when my kids were ALL STILL HOME; AND was pretty much chipped, rusty, and paint splattered. Now... it's green...with rather sketchy and somewhat white stripes.

Re-painted the stripes...take 2

 I also dipped the feet into the white paint...just for a little different detail. I did repaint the stripes,by hand this time; though darker...still sketchy ...but, it is a step stool. 
So, no biggie. It was virtually a free project. 

I am however noticing a trend towards GREEN...:)

  1. Glad you liked my little step stool enough to paint yours pretty too, Pat! At one of our previous homes, I was on a green "binge" and the constant joke in our house was, "What color are you going to paint it? Um...how about green this time?"
