While shopping at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago, I found this stool in the clearance section and thought that it might be a nice addition to the back porch. It seems that we never have enough side tables to set drinks on and this stool is the right size and height to rest in several different spots as needed.
I gave it two coats of white paint using this recipe and technique.
Then I added this image from the Graphics Fairy, using this technique. I sanded over it using a sanding block, making sure to hit the edges well. I also sanded the image so that it looked worn as well.
This was an easy project that took very little time to do. This size stool can be used in so many different places and perfect for adding extra table space when you have guests over. It also is a nice height for using as a foot rest in front of a chair. If if is built well, you can use it for extra seating. Unfortunately, this one is coming apart, as you can see in this picture! Maybe that is why it was on clearance at Hobby Lobby! Next time you see a stool for sale consider it’s possibilities. Just make sure it is constructed well!
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful week end!
