Retro High Stool

I think this is the coolest little stool I’ve ever seen…of course, it wasn’t in the greatest shape when I found it…but, like all old and unique pieces, it just takes a little extra TLC to give it that fresh new look….Also, and this is very important…goes to show you that Annie Sloan Chalk Paint isn’t just for wood…I painted this entire piece, that is made strictly of metal and vinyl, in ASCP Florence and Cream…then without doing any distressing, I just aged it a bit, added that cool french stamp,  then waxed it to a nice soft finish that brought out a light sheen…I really am thinking of just keeping it for myself…it just looks so cute in my kitchen….If I decide otherwise, I’ll let you know 🙂  Below are the before and after pics….






About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
