Old School Stools- Redone: Guest
Kristine at The Painted Hive has some really nice old school charm with these awesome stools.
To maintain and enhance the natural patina of the timber, I simply lightly sanded each seat before wiping on a diluted walnut stain which was allowed to seep into all the battle scars, adding some more depth and richness. To finish I applied two coats of danish oil.
I love the extra character the original old screws provide too.
>I LOVE these stools. I work in a school, but it isn't "that" old. I would love to find some treasures like you have!
>That is what I call HOT! I like them as tables too!!!!!
>i love these so much! Lezlee
>very nice! i love them.
i dont think they look too off the mark from the original pic…who wouldnt want to salvage?
>OH MY! I love those!!
>Really, really darling!
>THESE stools are one of my favorite projects! I LOVE that they have history too! Can you imagine how many bored student bottoms have sat on those stools staring at the periodic table!?! I ADORE those stencils too…the perfect touch. I'm in love with all things a bit industrial now too…but because my husband was I science teacher, I can't talk him into those kind of stools…believe me I tried!
