upcycled farm stool

Give new life to an old wooden stool with liquid leaf and gilding.
Step 1
Spread out newspaper (or cloth) over your work area.  
Step 2
Make sure that stool is clean, and that any loose flakes of paint are brushed off. 
 
Tip: The trend is to mix humble materials with glamorous finishes, so we have left the stool in its rough state. 
Step 3
Paint liquid gilding or Silver liquid leaf over the entire surface of the stool. Let dry. 
Step 4
Touch up any places you've missed.  
Step 5
Clean up brushes with turpentine (or mineral oil). 
Step 6
Share your project photos with #MadeWithMichaels
