Trial and Error

I was supposed to posreally t last Monday, but I got really busy suddenly.

With what little time I had, I experimented a little on the stool. I realize now I shouldn't have, but I did. Now I need to take a couple of steps back in order to make it right. But that's okay. Perfection cannot be rushed.

Here's a photo of my four trials...all errors...

The pink was a lot...pinker...than I originally pictured. So I need to get new pink paint. I also wanted to do lace pattern on it, and I still might. I'm on the fence about it. Overall, this did not work out like I had hoped.

That's okay, though. I can sand that off quickly, and repaint it. It's really not a big deal. I mean, Edison had to make like a hundred lightbulb prototypes before finally making one that worked, right? So I have plenty of mistakes left before this is all done!

Princess Step Stool

A few months ago, I acquired this cute little stool/tiny bench. It's been living in my trunk. Every time I turned a corner, I would hear it slide across the back and hit the side. I felt bad. I finally got it out and started making it beautiful.

Here it is, all dusted off:

 Here it is with it's coat of white paint:

Nothing too exciting yet, but the design is in the works. The next color is going to be pastel pink. The sides (the legs) are going to be pastel pink lace. The top is going to have a quote by President Uchtdorf. It'll be the one about how we are all princesses and our once upon a times begin now. (He says it so much better...)

That should be done this weekend. Expect an update with the completed product before Monday!
