One Cool Stool Make Over!

Yep, lots of posts today.  I’ll admit I’ve been a bit too preoccupied making things to take some time out to share my new projects.  Sorry, I’ll try better from now on. 🙂  But honestly, I’d rather be making than typing. 🙂

Again I was overly eager and did not take a before photo.  Bad, bad, bad.  Again, please use your imagination.  I started out with a very old stool.  The seat was wooden with lots of paint stains.  The legs were a grey rusty metal.  This piece was crying out for a make over!  And being the nice person that I am, it was lucky enough to come home with me for the bargain price of $5!

Again, there was some trial and error.  Firstly I unscrewed the seat off the legs and sanded it.  I then applied a lovely red coat of paint – and hated it!  Time to cover instead.  So I selected a cute scrap of red and white check fabric from my fabric stash (total cost – zero) and with the help of my glue gun, attached a layer of padding and then covered it with my super cute fabric.

I sanded the rust from the legs and applied 2 coats of spray paint.

I also purchased for approx $3 from the hardware a set of white stoppers for the feet. I imagine the original ones were long gone. 🙂

Then I put it all together and this was the finished masterpiece ….

Without further adieu …

Ta da!

This little cutie is has currently taken up residence in the kitchen and is fitting in beautifully. 🙂

I’m so happy with the result.  Total cost was just over $10 for this make over.  Another keeper me thinks. 🙂
