I found at the thrift store years ago.
It was stacked in the ‘useful’ section with several other stools, tools and random things.
When I found it~ it was painted a dingy gray color
I kind of liked it’s turned legs and simple look and it was just $2.00 so I brought it home
that little stool has worn many different colors
I found a charming dark hosta green color and painted it with that
and then added a little bit of antiquing stain.
So off it went into my office to sit in all it’s charm among
all the little projects I am always working on.
or the shelf above my closet- it is the perfect height and does the trick.
If I need a little extra side table or seat on occasion~ it always works.
As you know- I am somewhat of a project girl.
or trimming the Christmas tree
that stool goes right along with me to help me get it done.
or even worse dripped paint
and then stepped on it.
and so it’s seat was smashed and splattered with a painted finish
Add in all the chips from the occasional tip over or bump into the door frame
and that little old stool was starting to look pretty shabby and worn.
So with that hosta green and antiquing stain long gone…
recently I have been thinking about what color to paint it this time.
I glanced down at that stool and at it’s unusual paint job
and then as I rested my knee on it’s seat
I thought about all the ways that little stool had been perfect for just what I needed
it for over the past several years.
The more I looked at all those ‘flaws’ that covered it’s seat and legs
the more I knew it didn’t need a new coat of paint after all
Each and every paint splatter, ding, dent and chip it wore created that
unusual stool and it was just right.
It’s been a busy weekend over here working on some photography/styling projects~
I share a few out takes from the photos soon.
Hope your weekend has been fantastic!
