Quatrefoil Stool- My Chic Creation

I am so pleased with myself!
Ya, I did something, I didn't think I could do
and my self doubt made me feel like
I could never make something look as good as someone elses. . . . .
Well, I proved myself WRONG
I can do it!
I did do it! This is my, yes my
quatrefoil design stool
I got my idea from
Jen @
Tatertots & Jello
(she is amazingly talented)
She introduced me to quartrefoil
and I fell in love with it. . .

So I looked for a old ugly stool I could transform into a beautiful stool

I found this little beauty at DI. .
It was waiting for me.
It was ugly but I knew I could
make it beautiful
So the process began. . . .

I could have left it like this
It looked really pretty and fresh
I was on a mission
I wanted quatrefoil
I wanted to prove I could do it.

So the sanding, priming and painting
began on a very HOT summer day in July
It was painful
(I was sweating)
and the little stool was patient and waiting to be beautiful

And this is what I created!

This beautiful stool
I almost don't want to use it- - - - it is too pretty

Like I said. I got my idea from
Tatertots and Jello
Jen has a printable template for the design
She gave real good directions on how she did hers

I like doing it so much I think I will do
another project using the quatrefoil design.

I really did do it!
