Matt was not about to spend a lot of time sanding or prepping the stool so homemade chalk paint seemed like the obvious answer. He came up with the design and painted two coats of red paint, sanding lightly in between.
Next, he took the logo we had photocopied and covered the back with chalk. He secured it to the stool and traced the outline of the logo so that it left a chalk outline on the stool when he removed the paper. Then he filled in the outline with white paint and touched up the red. To make the stool more durable we used two coats of polyacrylic in satin finish.
