It all started with this eyesore, from the seventies. It's lived in four different homes.In the first home it was used at a very beautiful nook we had installed. Since then I've used in all my on-suites to do my makeup.It's been stood on as a paint stool, to get into cupboards, it's been used as a sewing chair and craft chair, It's been recovered a few times. The last time being twenty years ago. It has never matched this house, but it was so useful that I couldn't part with it! I kept planning to do something with it, but never did. No one but my family ever saw it. As you can see it is now bent, rusty, and pretty much done!! I had to bring it out of the garage to get a photo!
So a few month back we picked up three of these stools. One for Bryan to play guitar, one for the garage, and one for my bathroom. But low and behold this stool was way to high for my doctor Ruth type short legs!!! (Visualize them swinging on this chair!)
My wonderful son in law decided to trim it to match my freakish short legs. But when he turned it over to power saw the legs down, the base got a bit scratched up!! So I decided to paint it!!
I painted it with loads of acrylic, then took a paper and pulled the bulk of the paint off, which gave it a smudged affect! I still need to get varnish and do several coats so it will hold up, but I am using it til then!
It does double duty as a table to hold my beverages while I bathe. Then I sit on it to do my make up too! I love it. But this dear little stool with the chopped off legs, has been the catalyst to many other changes in that room!! Stay tuned for the frantic whimsy that has taken over my on-suite.
