The White Azalea

  These days I’ve been working on my porch décor, one of my favorite places to relax.   I needed another piece in the corner by my couch to rest a plant on.   I went hunting around the house and found an old stool my hubby had.  It was just the ticket!

The first thing I did was take it outside and give it a good sanding with a sanding block (For best results, use Course Grit).  Just really roughed it up a bit.  Then I wiped it down with a damp rag to get all the dust off.  It was ready for paint. 


Now you can look on Pinterest and find lots of tips and tricks on how to use chalk paint and waxes, special brushes and stains.  I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want to get a project done fast.    So, I picked up a can of Rust-oleum Satin Paint & Primer in One white paint and gave the stool a good coat.  I chose this paint because I wanted to skip the primer step so what better then paint and primer in one!


After it dried, I took the same sanding block and roughed up the legs and edges.  It was done and in place by the afternoon!  I sat my maidenhair fern on top and now all I have to do is keep this fern looking good (that’s for another blog – the hardest plant I know of to keep alive).


Thanks for spending time with me and I hope you visit again soon!
