Amanda from Jules’ Gems used Vintage Cupcake to turn an overlooked stool into a stylish, girly piece!

I get very excited when I thrift shop, and often times have to keep my cool, because let’s face it, I’m in public. But note that I did a major happy dance in my car on the drive home. This stool was in pretty rough aesthetic shape and a little wobbly, but I had a vision!

I tightened up all the screws, and that’s all it needed! I knew right away that I wanted to paint this gem pink! I’m not usually a fan of overly girly colors, but with the sweet heart cut outs I started painting right away.

I usually like to leave a part of my piece original, but couldn’t decide where. As I was painting, I realized that the hole in the top would be the most used part and decided that was my spot. I painted a thin coat of paint onto that area, and then sanded it off. This left a tiny bit of pink behind, just enough to make me happy.

After two coats of paint, I distressed the corners with a wet rag and it gave me the most authentic, perfect look.

This old stool looks so pretty and any little girl (or little girl at heart) will be thrilled to own this!
