Sometimes I am the worst at the Before picture, so I will just give you a rundown of how this stool looked before I painted it.
It was baby blue with a big yellow star it the middle, isn't it amazing how are style can change over time, or just get a little more sophisticated.
I spray painted it with Krylon, then I cut my graphic out of vinyl, but I didn't want to use the vinyl on the stool because I wasn't sure how it would hold up to my kids standing on it. So I used the vinyl as a stencil, and of course we have to make everything look old so I used some distress ink on the corners.
I hope this inspires you.
