Crafty!?

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am not a crafty person. I always wished I was, but it just isn't one of my gifts. I'm ok with this, but I do like to try a little project sometimes just for fun. Usually this ends up being a disaster, but a girl's got to try, right? I have learned that it's best for me to follow exact directions, copy something already crafty, or keep things VERY simple.
I have had this stool for years and years. I don't even remember exactly but I think I made it at Vacation Bible School or something like that. Anyway, I decided to paint it for Zach so he could play or sit on it, and one day use it as a little step.

Before pic - nicely decorated with everyone's names. Ha!

I liked to write my name...

Tada! I really like how it turned out, and no the circles are not supposed to be perfect. That wouldn't be any fun. ; )

I hope Zach likes it!
