I took the metal stool back to my house and gave it a fresh paint job. The legs were painted in a turquoise color and the seat portion were painted in red.
Paint colors used:
- Krylon Aqua Ocean Breeze
- Rustoleum Apple Red
I let the stool dry for 24 hours. Next I coated the paint job with a mixture of Mod Podge Gloss and gold glitter (Martha Stewart Fine Glitter purchased at Michaels.)
After another 24 hours, I added some die cuts made with my Cricut.
- Book = cut image and shadow at 8" from Cricut Locker Talk cartridge; [book] found on page 47 of the folder.
- Ruler = cut at 3 1/2" (using fit to width feature) from Cricut Locker Talk cartridge; [ruler] found on page 41 of the folder. The ruler cut only makes tick marks where the numbers and such should be. I used a black gel pen and traced to make the numbers and the word inches.
- Text = cut at 1 1/2" from Cricut Plantin SchoolBook cartridge. The "r" and "d" were cut at 1".
- All images were attached using Mod Podge Gloss / Gold Glitter mixture.
Once the Mod Podge dried, I gave everything a second coat of the Mod Podge Gloss / Gold Glitter mixture. The next day, I gave the entire stool a coating of Tree House Clear Acrylic Gloss Coating.
I plan on returning this little stool tonight to the 3rd grade teacher.
