A while ago I bought a cute vintage wooden 3 legged stool. I painted it with some Annie Sloan paint, didn’t like it and packed it away on the loft. My 3 year old is starting a new nursery later this month so we’re trying to make a fuss of her and give her bedroom an inexpensive makeover.
Guess what I made my un-loved vintage 3 legged stool into? A fantastically cool Miffy stool and my daughter loves it. At 3 years old her bedroom is rocking the pink look so I have made a subtle stool in cool white and grey to balance out some of the pink.
The first step was to give the stool a light sand and paint it white. The legs had already been painted in Annie Sloan Paris Grey so I left them as they were. I gave the seat two coats.
While it was drying I made a paper template of Miffy’s eyes and mouth. I lightly pricked around each one with a pin to use as a guide to painting them on the seat with black paint.
I added on her mouth and eyes and left it to dry overnight.
I love the finished DIY Miffy stool and so does my daughter. I’m wondering what other easy DIY’s I can do around the house next!
