Near the end of the sale, everything was half price. I kept walking pass this stool and finally said, why not. It was 50 cents. I also got a rocker for $1.00, you will see that in a later post.As you can see, it needed some lovin.
It was probably handmade and it was very sturdy. They placed a 12 inch peel-n-stick tile on the top that was coming off. I had such a mess trying to get the tile off. The glue was everywhere. I used a glue gun on the tile to try and lift it off and that made it worse.
I had some yard sticks from Home Depot - my vintage ones are for another project. I stained them in a cherry stain and applied them so the seams are in a staggered pattern.
I clamped the end to hold that piece while I glued the rest of the pieces. When the top was done, I clamped both ends in place.
Now it was a really cute stool. So why not put some Easter items on it.
The Easter blocks are really special. I purchased them from a lady who was commissioned by Disney to paint some of there items. I have had them a long time and she has since passed away. I also have a set of larger blocks that have Christmas scenes on them.
I think they are so pretty.
Well, I know how you like the before and after shots, so here is mine.
For 50 cents, and three yard sticks from Home Depot. I love how it turned out.>
