Coraline Stool by quidditchmom Coraline Stool by quidditchmom
lol "stool"

Anyway, my husband and I are converting our old office into a craft room/ future nursery. The theme is Coraline, and will be the theme for when our daughter arrives! I got this stool at Michaels on clearance for like $14. I did some sanding where the tags and stickers were and just painted it with acrylic paints. I will probably finish it with a gloss or varnish.

So you know the cat is supposed to look like that, lol. I left out the well and the Pink Palace cause I was afraid theyd show up too bulky. Im also not totally happy with her slicker, but overall Im happy with it. I've got some other unfinished wood stuff in here that I think Im going to do in a Coraline theme too. We'll see!

beautiful stool the other mother hand is so detailed. awesome a Coraline nursery... as a reminder to at least let your kids know why you have to work so hard and that you are not just ignoring them.

My grandma & one aunt treated us like "other mothers"... the wrong kind of love. to possess and control us kids. Conditional love only when we did what they liked and WARNING: family saying nasty subliminal things that our parents don't care about us and try for us to rebel.

Follow your maternal intuition if it says your family is hurting your kids, even if you don't have proof, you are correct!

It's beautiful. I don't think anyone should sit on it because it's too gorgeous, hahaha. I like how the tips of the legs of the chair are dark blue and slowly change into black.

NICE. Way to carry a theme throughout something without belaboring it. Coraline's proportions look great; I like the semi-sillhouette to control colors.

Thanks! I want to do the rest of the furniture in here as Coraline-themed, but without overdoing it. I think Im just going to keep with the colors, and not try and do too much detail. Or maybe I'll be lazy and not do anything. Sorry it took me a friggin month to get back to you....

Thank you so much! I was really worried about pulling off the tree, but I pulled my laptop as close as I could and looked at the reference pic about a billion times. I'm really relieved it came out so well. Thanks! You're like the 3rd person to say their going to come steal it, but I'm pretty sure my cats would defend it to the death. Or, maybe they'd just walk away and take a nap, I dont know.
