Since then I’ve been obsessed with painting wooden furniture with it but I was curious  to see how the Chalk Paint® would do on other something other than wood…hence the faux-leather footstool redo I have for you today.

That’s the before; not in terrible shape but dark and boring nonetheless.

So last weekend cleaned her and slapped on 2 coats of Antibes Green.  Tried a bit of free hand numbering (the jury is still out on how well that went ha! But overall it for a fun and easy way to give a ho-hum footstool a dash of panache.

Oh and after I let the paint dry a couple of hours, I put two thin coats of Modern Masters Dead Flat Varnish so it would be good and protected.

      So happy you liked it Jeanette! Stencils are for sissies! just kidding I’m just too lazy to use one. Little secret: I think it turned out ok because of the foam brush I used.
