I was recently inspired by zebra/tiger stripes and wanted to find a project I could Sass up.
Step 1: Good Find
I found these two timber top Bar Stools on Gumtree for $20.
Step 2: Detach and Sand
I removed the Timber tops from their bases to be able to work on them eaiser. I sanded the tops with 240 then 400 grit sand paper for a smooth surface.
Step 3: Paint
I painted the border with Annie sloane's graphite chalk paint and the top with Porters paints "Priscilla" chalk paint.
Step 4: Cameo Time
I cut Zebra Stencils using my Silhouette Cameo, and painted them in with Unicorn Spit's Midnight Blackness.
Step 5: Unifying Border
I painted the border with Unicorn Spit's Midnight Blackness to unify the border with the top.
Step 6: Polyurethane
I applied 7 coats of oil based polyurethane on each stool, lightly sanding between each coats and waiting 24 hrs between coats before re applying.
I cleaned the bases and sprayed them with 2 coats of Rust-oleum Black Gloss Spray Paint
Step 7: Project Complete
I re attached the Bar Stool tops to their bases, believing I achieved the Sassy look!
