Time Out Can Be Fun?

Many of you all know that I'm a recent empty nester.  My children are all young adults in college or married sometimes it's a little sad.  I miss the sleepovers, ballgames, school activities even if it was a little chaotic at times it was well worth it.

With that said I thought I would show you a little project that I finished that has to do with youngsters.  I saw a couple of these stools at the thrift store the other day,  it's one of those army green camp stools.  As I carried them up to the register the hubs said okay now what???

Ya a timeout chair that's what!!!  These stools are the perfect size to sit those little rascals on when they're being naughty.  Super easy I just dry brush watered down white paint, grabbed some drop cloth fabric stenciled timeout and a clock on it and ...bam done.  I did sew a straight seam on the sides I didn't want it to fray.

Love it!!! Wish I had some youngins to put on it.... oh well off to Simply Vintage it goes!!!
