Step Stool Makeover with Stencils

Good morning! I’m a little late this week, but I finally made it here! I had several small paint projects I worked on this weekend and I thought I would share this one with you. It’s just a simple little update.

I picked up this sturdy little stool awhile ago. It was already white, it just needed a little freshening up. I used a creamy color white to spray paint it, but wanted to add a little bit more to it. I remembered I had these stencils (Designer Stencils and the design is Jaipur Damask) from my entryway floor and decided to use the smaller one here.

I pulled out 2 different paints from what I had to try them out. I tried the Glidden Quiet Rain first, but it was too light, so turquoise it is!

I measured to find the center of the step and then taped my stencil on to keep it in place.

I used a foam dauber and just lightly dipped it into the paint. I try not to get too much paint on the brush, but if I do, I just daub some off before I put it on the stencil.

Lightly pounce all over the design. You don’t want to press too hard, unless you are wanting a very distinct design.

I painted both the top of the stool and the step.

I carefully lifted off the stencil and then let the paint dry. This didn’t take too long, since there wasn’t much paint. I lightly sanded over the design once it was dry.

I added a couple of pumpkins and a cozy throw and it’s all ready for fall!
