After many years of working in the art of faux finishing, murals and custom painted furniture, I was asked to paint and personalize a step stool to be given as a baby shower gift. I was hooked! Here was an item that could be painted, decorated and personalized to fit the client's vision. It had infinite design possibilities, was portable and was affordable. It was a useful product, easy to work with and could be shipped anywhere. This was an item that a client could contribute to in all aspects of the design. Best of all, it had longevity and could be handed down with its own history....and it was fun!
I fell in love with this little 'blank canvas' and discovered that pretty much any type of paint, stain, fabric, paper or decoration (it's endless!) can be applied. I have had the pleasure to paint step stools for children and adults...college graduates...baby showers...boats...motor homes...housewarming gifts, etc. The possibilities are endless.
It all boils down to ....your inspiration - my paint and brushes! Let's create...no special occasion needed.
