Pretty Princess Stool

Pretty Princess Stool - finished look

I spotted a little unfinished stool at Hobby Lobby yesterday for $14.99.   I really didn't pay that much - used my 40% coupon.

I spray painted the stool in a glossy plum color.

While the paint was drying, I cut out this crown and "Pretty Princess" font from Life's a Party Cricut cartridge.   Crown cut at 4 inches.   "Pretty Princess" font cut at 2 inches.

Once the stool dried, I applied the cuts to the stool with mod podge. Once mod podge dried, I applied stickles to the crown (for jewels) and Viva Decor to center of flowers. Flowers were cut at 2 inches from Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge.

Next morning:  I applied Clear Acrylic Gloss Coating.  Dries really fast - 2 minutes!

Finishing touches - hot pink tulle tied in bows around legs of stool.

And here is the final result.
