How many times have you seen these little stools in thrift stores and yard sales? I purchased two of them recently. I got this one at a yard sale.
And I got this one at a local thrift store in my area.
The top lifts up for storage on this one. I’m thinking of re-doing it for the bathroom to hold magazines.…everyone needs a little something to read in there.
I wanted a cute little stool for my kitchen where I wouldn’t have to store away all the time. This stool was the right height so that I could reach the top of my cabinets. I took the top off and sprayed painted the legs and sides.
I sprayed painted it Espresso Brown.
I covered the top of the stool with fabric I had on hand.
I wanted to put a pleated trim on the stool. I cut strips of fabric and sewed them together. I hemmed it by using my sewing machine but you could use the iron on tape to hem it if you don’t have a sewing machine.
I used my hot glue gun and glued the fabric all the way around making my pleats as I went along.
Once I finished with the pleated trim, I screwed the top of the stool back on.
I love how it turned out!
Now I don’t need to get the ugly little plastic step stool out or sit on the counter tops to reach the top of the cabinets.
And now Charlie can use his favorite bowl for his nighttime popcorn because me and my little stool can reach the top of the cabinets to put it away.
I wanted a cute little stool for my kitchen and I have to say that I think I have one. And to think all total it probably cost me a little over four dollars….love that even more!
