Even though it’s been around for a long time, chalk paint has especially been a trend for the past couple of years, and has been gaining in popularity around the blogosphere. As someone who paints a lot of furniture, I’d wanted to try it for a long time, but really wanted to wait for the perfect project to come along first. Finally, I found THE project. Eight kitchen stools that belonged to our old dining table–the one before the lovely farmhouse table we use now–that I really wanted to use around our big island were just begging to be refinished. Six of them would fit…perfect for our kids!
