A while ago I received this vintage stool from my aunt. I loved the shape and wanted to give it a fresh look, so I decided to go with Classico chalk-based paint in colour "Poetic Blue" by Pure & Original. The reason to go with a chalk-based paint is the natural and matte finish, besides the beautiful finish it is also easy to work with, and requires only minimal preparation. Success guaranteed! Another significant advantage of Classico; no wax needed.
Step by step
Roughen the surface by sanding it for the smoothest result.
I used a smooth roller to paint the stool.
Start with the legs and bottom, then let it dry.
Ready to paint the top side, paint in one direction for an equal result.
Note: Use a brush if you like that old hand-painted result.
General rule: Make sure that the substrate is free of wax, silicones, and grease.
