Custom Painted Kitchen Stool with Travel Theme


Where you shared your first kiss. Your idyllic honeymoon. Your first family vacation. Where your ancestors came from. These are the places where you leave--or find--your heart.

Now take those places that call to you so strongly, and imagine them greeting you at your kitchen table each morning, with your very own kitchen stool!

This series of kitchen stools was created to complement the Custom Painted Dining Table with Travel Theme (see separate listing), and expand on that theme. In the table, elements of the family's home city of Los Angeles appear, with compass points aiming at their favorite destinations, each pictured on a stool: Boston, Paris, London, and Hong Kong. Each city contains elements chosen by the client for very personal reasons--like the park in London where their daughter loves to play, or the carousel in Paris where they spent a golden afternoon. In each case, I took the sights and landmarks that had meaning for them, and distilled them into one image, to transport them back to a happy moment and a magical place.

The customization possibilities here are endless, really. Where does your heart long to return? I'll help you get there. Colors, places, sky's the limit. Need a chair instead of a stool? Request a custom order, and I'll create a listing for you (additional cost will apply).

Let's start a conversation, and see where we end up!

As always, I start with high-quality, unfinished hardwood furniture, and hand paint them in painstaking detail with non-toxic acrylic and latex paints, and at least 3 coats of non-toxic sealer, so clean up is as easy a a swipe with a damp cloth.

Each piece is signed and numbered for authenticity. Please allow 8-10 weeks for completion.
