Vintage Stool Makeover

 Hey Readers!  I've been going through my photos and have found a few fun treasures that I have never shared.

One being these fun Vintage stools that I pick up at a garage sale for $1 each!  I was on cloud 9, but had no clue what I was going to do with them.

But truly, who would pass these up for a whole $1??

Admittedly they did sit for a few weeks and then it dawned on me that I had purchased a bolt of this adorable Dick and Jane oil cloth at our local Goodwill.  It was marked $3.99, but just happened to be 50% off again.  And when I bought that, I also had no clue what I would use it for.  But again, couldn't pass it up.

Guess what?  It was JUST what I wanted for my stools.  I wanted some fun stools for my children to use at their homework stations (to be built).  Bingo!

I don't have step by step photos, but I took apart the original seat covers and literally threw together a pattern and made new ones within 30 minutes.  Don't look closely because they are not perfect.  

I spray painted the frames, and put them back together and they were perfect!

Here is a fun side by side before and after shot!

That's it for today!  Don't forget to head over to Facebook and follow me there and be sure to check out all of the places I like to party all week long by clicking here.
