I can’t get enough of neon hues! I’ve been wanting to have a flashy red stool for ages and I guess the time has come that I just needed one in my life. I got so inspired that I rushed to my local shop and picked up a tin of neon paint. Luckily I already had a stool at home, waiting to get it’s new fluo life.
Red is quite unusual choice for me but I have to tell you – I’m extremely happy with the final result. It’s not that it’s colorful, it’s shockingly colorful! It’s unbelievable how a can of paint can transform the simplest of furnishing into a statement. As you may have noticed, not only the stool is new here, I also got myself a new cactus friend. We don’t hug but we get along quite well 😉
So the vibrant stool and the cactus resulted in a little styling shoot. The camera didn’t quite capture the true color…but believe me – it is NEON!
Making neon stool was definitely ‚good for my soul’ and I love it!
Painting a stool is really simple and it doesn’t require step by step instructions but I will share with you what I did.
You will need:
A sand paper
Neon paint of your choice
What I did:
First of all I washed my stool, then I used a sand paper to create a smooth painting surface. When my chair was ready I spray painted it with Crafts Spray – twice. If you want your stool to have a equal look, paint it first with white paint and then with neon. You might also want to cover your newly painted stool with a protective finish.Here you can also see my before and after… 🙂
