White-Washed Stool and I Hired an Assistant!

Hi Friends!! I've got a quick little makeover for you today, and some fun news as well. First up is the makeover. I picked up this little stool at the Goodwill a few weeks back: It was in perfect condition, just not my favorite color. I've shown you how I paint something distressed without the original paint color showing through, using petroleum jelly, in this recent post.

28 Farmhouse Furniture Ideas {with Hometalk!}
