{the conversation I had with} my blue painted stool

So here’s pretty much how it went down…

I walked into the kitchen and [almost] past the little stool that sits at the end of the counter.

But then it called out to me for something.

So I slapped on a coat of muted aqua blue paint, the same as the china cabinet in the other room.

But the stool seemed not yet satisfied with my efforts.

So I took to it with a bit of 80 grit sandpaper.

But I might have gotten a smidge carried away in spots.

So I added back a little watered down blue to a few over-sanded spots.

And the little stool seemed to approve at last. So back he went to his spot, looking blue but not feeling it.

Oh, and here’s Sis, who immediately assumed that my camera must have been out to take photos of her and her little stuffed dog, Super J. See that pic on the right? She told me she was helping Super J “cheese”… you know, by tilting his head a bit. So.Stinkin’.Cute. How did I get this life? I am one blessed woman.
