Vintage Piano Stool painted with ASCP Arles

I purchased this vintage piano stool at an estate sale a few months ago. It was in really bad shape but I had a vision!

After an overall wipedown I painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Arles. It took a good 2 coats to acheive complete coverage.  I then did the clear wax/dark wax ritual.

I wasn't sure that I was liking it all that much at this point. The rusty feet didn't seem to jive with the buttery smooth yellow.  I decided to distress it (heavily! yikes!) and this is the final outcome:

She is now waiting for the perfect home!


  1. turned out great! I Love those old stools, and you
    picked a great color for it

  2. It turned out beautiful! Love the soft finish of the ACSP! Thanks for sharing.
