Little' est Milking Stool antiqued with Rooster graphic

Was she used to milk Bessie on the farm?

Another junky Hermanus find....Cutest!

Here she is before - plain Jane and downright sad!

Wow! Look at me now!

I went to work on the milking stool using a colour called Cement Wash by Plascon mixed with plaster of paris for that chalky paint effect! I then transferred this adorable colourful rooster using the Modge Podge method! This graphic is by Karen The Graphics Fairy. I am having so much fun using her stunning images and its free!
Anyhoo! I distressed this little stool in all the right places, added some ebony stain to those adorable pins and then mahogany wood stain for the antiqued effect!

Do you love her now!

I completed more great make overs using my chalk paint. I will post those later - right now I need some shut eye!

Sumaya! create a -new!


  1. Hi Sumaya, I just bought some plaster of paris to try out. I have a long narrow sofa table I want to give a make over. i bought it at a yard sale for $20. I love the rooster! The distressing is fab! Did you cut the image out entirely or does it have a bit of white around it? Looks almost as if it was painted on. Great job!

  2. Such a sweet stool. Followed you back!


  3. This is just amazing..what talent Sumaya..
