Queen Bee Stool

I purchased these wood bar stools recently thinking that they all were the same size. I had visions of making them a set. Well they were not and thus I had to go to plan B and decide on what to do with them individually. Since my boss is away at Round Top I decided this was a good time to get my many projects done. Today I tackled one of the stools.

Here is my Queen Bee stool! 

I used paint markers to hand draw the design on top of the stool and also gave it a white washed antique look.

The finish is a mix of regular paint and chalk paint. I just love how it turned out. Now what to do with the other three stools? Hmmm....
Thanx for stopping by!

  1. I say you stick with the theme...maybe a butterfly, a dragonfly, and a ladybug!

  2. It looks great! I just saw four on our kijiji and I was thinking of asking about them. Now I definitely will.

  3. I've been looking for barstools just like these so I can "transform" them!
    They look amazing!!

  4. Super cute, Pamela! The queen bee graphic is adorable.
