"...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."

Mon peu défraîchi français tabouret
I went to the shop to deliver some goods and there sitting out in the sun all by itself was this stool and the selling price was only 2.00, even I can afford that! Wow what a deal. So I took it home and glued it back together and set to work on a design. I decided to undercoat it in a flat black so I could take more time to deliberate and come up with a plan. After the paint dried I knew that I wanted to paint it a shabby white and use a post mark design, I really like the Parisian influence on art world! I had seen a project online (wish I could remember another thing I need to work on along with the before and after pictures!) and came up with a design that fit perfectly on the top of the stool. I used a brush to sponge on the 2 circles and then stenciled the words and date. After everything was dried I painted on a black-brown glaze and then sealed the stool with a poly-coat. I love how it came out and sure hope to do more with the post mark design so keep watch I promise not to disappoint!
