A Trio of Stools Makeover

Happy Monday everyone!!!

It's nearly summer break for us :) Are you already there??

Little man is really the only one getting a summer break...I've got classes scattered throughout the summer but I'm looking forward to slowing down the pace a bit for sure.

If you guys hang out with me much on facebook (which you totally should!!)
then you've probably noticed my slight obsession with Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze spraypaint!

I'm in looovve with it. 
I used it here...and here...and well, here too.

I shared a sneak peek of what I was working on this past weekend with you guys...
and now I'm ready to show the full reveal :)

I started off with these lovely palm-tree encrusted metal barstools that a client wanted to have updated...

Isn't the shape gorgeous?
I loved the beaded detailing around the backs of the seat and the bamboo legs are way cute.

Luckily for me, she loved the blue ocean breeze color as much as I do and I sold her on it :)
 I mean, these guys were completely meant to be beach-inspired but not with depressed-looking palm trees. 

I spritzed them down with the Krylon paint.
It took one full can of paint and a tiny bit of a second for each. 

Don't they just look happy now?
For one extra bit of sassiness, I added some glaze to them too. 
They were kind of a pain to glaze with all their spindly legs and thin details.
But I got it done and loved the result!!!

You can see the difference between the stool on the left (not glazed) and the stool on the right (glazed) below. 

The glaze just gives it a bit more pop 
& makes those details shine!!

I love the backs of these stools!

Am I the only one who just feels happier when I see this color???

Check out the before and after and tell me it doesn't make you want to jump into a crisp, clear pool right about now!!

Are you still into the aqua craze with me? 

I asked this question over the weekend but I'll ask again just cuz I want to know so bad--
what's your favorite go-to spraypaint color this season???

Hope you guys have a great start to your week :)
