Peacock Stool - "Come On, Let Your Colors Burst"!

Hello Friends! Guess what? 
I am so excited I get to participate in the The Fab Furniture Flippin’ Contest this month with
"Come On, Let Your Colors Burst!" Everyone is spitting on their creations! Well, kinda... it's a term that is fondly used this month because...

this month’s Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest is sponsored by Unicorn SPiT! A company that produces a colorful, non-toxic, (super safe) water-based gel stain that actually smells like jasmine. Can you believe it?!?! 

You can check out their videos and portfolio "here".  Then you'll get as excited as me! 

Let's take a look at what I got all colorful about. 

A thrift shop stool that I was doing all shabby chic but put it away. When I needed something to get colorful... this was the perfect victim. 

So it got a pretty Robin's egg blue color.  ;) 

And some leg tattooing... just kidding, the spit spots (splatter) isn't the design. Just part of it. You'll see in a minute. 

I taped off the seat to paint a plain white canvas. (Tape Tip Time: electrical tape does wonders on curved surfaces and doesn't peel your paint off.) 

Then my vision went onto the "canvas". With the tape still in place, I tried to create my inspiration from a peacock feather. Bursting with colors, I thought it suits the theme. Oh, and I love peacock feathers. 

Then removed the tape and applied a gorgeous royal blue around the rim of the seat. 

Finally feathered up the legs mixed with the spit spots. ;) 

And here we are. 

Me, hoping that you like my colorful contest creation.

So what do you think? 

I love the colors. (And I'm as proud as a peacock about it!)
