A Little Blue Stool or Table

Happy fourth of July!  Here are some pretty red, white, and blue flowers for you.

And they are sitting on a new, old looking little stool or side table I made.

I used some chunky, rustic 2x10's for the top and legs.  I attached the legs using the kreg jig and I added a cross bar,

and some thin apron pieces across the front and back.  I painted it this lovely aqua color (called perfect aqua) and then sanded when it was dry.  I did quite a bit of sanding with 80 grit sandpaper.

I love how the stain (puritan pine color) brought out the darkness of the wood.

This makes a great side table, tall stool, or plant stand.  I am in love with the chippy paint and rustic wood.

  3. This is beautiful I need to try staining after I paint and sand to get that look on my pieces. Love the photos!

  4. Lovely. One of the best things that makes me happy to travel is seeing wonderful flowers around the place. Creates an ambiance that drives you to pause for a moment.
