“Dipped” Stools

March 14, 2012

On Saturday night I measured, taped, sanded, and painted the bottom seven inches of our kitchen stools’ legs.

We went to our local Ace Hardware and got a free quart of their new Clark + Kensington brand flat enamel, color matched to Benjamin Moore 1335 Cactus Flower. A quart of C+K is usually $14.99, so it was a great deal. I love the stools so much — I think they look like they were dipped in bubblegum.

My supplies were three Landon Barstools from Target, a quart of paint, a foam roller, blue painters’ tape, a measuring tape, and cardboard.

This project was inspired by many beautiful things on Pinterest, including this photograph from Apartment Therapy of Steph & Phil’s Victorian home in Portland, OR. There’s a huge “dipped” trend on the blogs lately and it’s just too cute and happy to pass up.

To check out other projects inspired by Pinterest, check out the Pinterest Challenge hosted by Katie @ BowerPower, Cassie @ Hi Sugarplum!, Erin @ The Great Indoors, and the Petersiks @ Young House Love.

Go ahead, drool!
