Wow guys! It is Week 5 of the One Room Challenge. I feel pretty good about where I am and panicked at the same time.
Got a couple deliveries coming in hot. The shelf, light fixtures and headboard installed.
My DIY project this week was to makeover the little stool I got at the thrift store.
This stool will always be the purchase that got me my first Senior Discount! No really.
Little did I know that Tuesday’s you get a 20% discount if you’re over 55 at Community Hospice Hope Chest. The clerk was looking at me, trying to decide whether to take the risk and ask. Since I didn’t know there was a discount on Tuesdays, I thought she just really liked the lip color I had on as she studied me. But then she went there...very politely. I blurted out “yes” without thinking when she said, “you’re not 55 are you?” Yes. Yes I am! Loud and proud. So with my senior discount, my little stool cost a whopping $8! 😉 This is a high five when I’m trying to do this project on a budget.
All the discounts please.
To give this stool a makeover I sanded a million layers of paint down.
I used a white spray paint with primer and gave it two coats.
Using a trash bag, I taped off the legs of this cutie and sprayed them gold to create that dip dyed look.
