I have been working hard on some projects and I wanted to share one with you ladies (and men?). I picked up this super dirty, ugly, old children's step stool from an almost definite dumpster death, aka the side of the road :-)
I don't know about everyone else but I am almost embarrassed to admit that my husband and I drive around on big trash pick up to look through others "treasure" as we like to call it. haha. I would have just died when I was younger if I knew I would be doing this now! Heck, I would have just died a year ago...but I have been inspired by others out here in blog land to do it! So it has turned into a bit of a hobby. Thanks a ton ladies ;-)
After sanding, priming and painting here is the stool now:
Sigh. Much better. I like it but most importantly my son ABSOLUTELY ADORES IT! Ha, I'm a fibber...I only wish he adored it, he doesn't even care! I'm sure if he would have seen the stool before all my hard work he would have rathered the cows but not so sad to say they just don't fit into my bathroom decor.
Here is a preview for my next post:
I still have to take the after photos but it is finished :-) and yes, this too was a roadside find. Oh boy if my high school self could see me now! haha.
