So, three months ago, I committed to painting the stool before bringing it over to Laura's for the babies to use. She wanted their bathroom to be in an ocean theme and Levi's in love with 'Jake and the Neverland Pirates' so I said I would put Jake on the stool and mermaid on it for Rhynn. Three months ago.
I don't know who's been keeping track of the time but apparently SOMEONE has - lol. So I finally finished it today.
I started out (a couple of weeks ago) by sanding the stool well, making sure there were no rough edges to scratch Levi and Rhynn. I then primed it and painted it a solid blue.
I found pictures of Jake and Scully and a mermaid on line.
And here is my finished stool!
The stencil I bought to put their names on turned out to be too big so I wrote their names free-hand. I ran a piece of painter's tape along the top and bottom of each step to keep a straight line, drew the letters on with pencil and then painted them in.
To Levi and Rhynn Love, Captain and Gigi 2014
