I love DIY projects. Yesterday, I posted my before and after pic of a stool I refurnished. I felt like such a proud grade school student who just finished one of my best school projects as I ran into the room and proudly showed off my hard work to my husband. Haha. 😛 Needless to say, I’m OBSESSED with it! Here’s my before and after picture of it:
Originally, I bought this stool at an estate sale for dirt cheap. I knew I wanted to do something with it, but having so many weddings this year and trying to plan a kitchen, I just didn’t have the time. Finally I got around to it and I couldn’t have been more happy with how it all turned out! What I loved even more about this project was that it was less than $20 to do everything! Winning!
What you’ll need for this project is:
1. stool (duh)
2. favorite fabric pattern
3. fine sanding sponge
4. staple gun with staples
5. foam mattress (I got mine from JoAnn’s Fabrics)
6. spray paint
I sanded down the entire stool so that the paint would adhere better to the wood. Sprayed a good 3-4 coats of white spray paint and that was all. Then I followed the instructions from Jen’s blog: The House of Wood. Thanks Jen for the idea!!
Here’s just a close up of the fabric I chose. Pretty right!!
Now I have a pretty stool to sit on while I do my makeup. 🙂 Stay tuned for my makeover of my vanity table!
