Little Fishies Step Stool

Hey friends, welcome
to another paint project!

I have this little step stool
that Nana wanted me to paint
for her bathroom.
The smaller kiddos
will use it to step up
and wash their hands.







Here are some of the paint colors I used.
I actually included a darker blue too.





I've used this dip and drag technique
on some of my other furniture pieces

I used chalk to outline
the placement of the letters.





Papa grew up on the Platte River
selling bait with his dad
so this text will have special meaning.




I sanded all over to create a weathered look
and added a little bobber jewelry.




It will be a little bit of nostalgia for Nana and Papa.
It will also be very practical for the kids that need a boost.






I hope you have some fun projects going on as well...
making happy homes.
See you soon!
Deb

Hi Deb! Don't believe I've ever come across your blog before, but I love your style! This little stool caught my eye over at Primitive and Proper. Would love for you to share this over at my Trash 2 Treasure Tuesday party, and join us each week! Going to do a little more exploring on Lake Girl Paints now. :)

This stool is sooo cool! I totally want one :) That drip and drag is the neatest technique I have seen in a long tine!
