Paint and Paper Monogram Stool

By:

Turn your kitchen into an artsy escape with a Paint and Paper Monogram Stool. Cool shades of acrylic paint and scrapbook paper combine to create one of the coolest home decor crafts you'll ever find. Painted bar stool ideas can help you turn a plain seat into something really spectacular. Find some stools at a garage sale or thrift store and use a variety of craft materials to make them stand out. Once you make your own stool, you'll never want to buy one ever again. If you're looking to add a hint of color to your decor, you can't go wrong with this paint craft.

  2. Paint side rungs of stool Poodleskirt Pink, allowing to dry after each coat.
     
  3. Cut 10" circle from scrapbook paper. (We used dinner plate as template.)
     
  4. Trace letter onto center of paper. Paint letter Pistachio Mint and use hair dryer on low heat setting to speed drying and avoid wrinkling.
     
  5. Use even coat of glue to back of paper circle and quickly attach to center of stool seat, gently smoothing out any wrinkles. Use hair dryer on low heat setting, about 6" from stool seat, to speed drying of glue and avoid wrinkling of paper. Let glue dry completely before proceeding.
