Have you ever completed a project and immediately been dissatisfied with it?
My kitchen stool is such. I wasn’t completely happy with the white label on the black seat of my Mod Podge Kitchen Stool. It bothered me. The look wasn’t exactly what I was going for. At all.
Sometimes, we grow into liking something more as time passes. Well, a year and a half is time enough!
After printing the French grain sack label and the “H” monogram label, I was in a quandary about which one to choose at the time. It wouldn’t have mattered which label I chose – it was the black seat that needed changing.
Recently, I was painting some projects in the kitchen (as you know, my favorite place to paint) in ASCP Pure White. I detoured my brush briefly to the kitchen stool seat.
Before I even thought about it twice, it was done.
That’s one thing I love about paint. It’s quick. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is especially quick, since there’s no prep necessary.
Another thing I love about paint (OK, that’s two) is you can change your mind – several times, even. Paint gives you a clean slate.
After two coats of ASCP, I sanded the edges to reveal a little of the black for a slightly warn look. I Mod Podged the grain sack label onto the stool.
You can print your French Grain Sack label at The Graphics Fairy. But, I’m here to warn you…once you get to her site…you might be there for hours! The Graphics Fairy will fill you with loads of ideas and inspiration.
Ahh! Finally…the stool I’ve been wishing for…this year and a half.
My stool redo was a very quick project (this time) since the legs were already painted. Better, don’t you agree?
If you have a project you’re dissatisfied with, I encourage you to go ahead and make the changes. Wait no longer to do the thing that is in your brain. You’ll be glad you did it.
What do you have planned for this weekend? I hope you have a nice, relaxing, long Labor Day weekend. 🙂
