Rustic Gold Centerpiece

Paint a Step Stool

 Take a cue from the project below and paint a step stool this weekend.  A fun and easy project that will look great in your bathroom, kitchen, or any other room in your home.  So y’all I can’t reach the top cabinets in my kitchen.  Yep I am tad short.  So this step stool gives me the extra height I need without pulling up a kitchen chair.  However I wanted it to be pretty and go in the kitchen as well.  You will love this stencil and how easy it is to get this look for yourself.  This project was originally posted over on the DecoArt blog but I am sharing here in case y’all missed it.
