Scandinavian Painted Stool

One of the best thing about my husband's current woodworking obsession is this little treasure that he made out of scrap wood. It's the perfect stool for a shorty like me! I stumbled upon Miss Mustard Seed's furniture decor style and new I had to add an extra touch of something to my tiny stool.

 My husband stained and sealed the stool for me already so all the materials I needed to finish it was paint and a paintbrush.

 I wanted a creamy yellow color so I mixed a bit of cream and yellow together. I also used a paintbrush instead of a foam brush as pictured below. For your own inspiration, look through my

. I decided to stick with a pretty basic, scandinavian inspired motif along the edges.

 After the paint had dried I sanded it down a little bit to add the worm feeling to it. I know that the more it gets used the better it will look!
