I'm sorry I didn't get this post up yesterday.
I forgot I promised Ms. Sassy that I would take her to the mall.
We don't go to the mall much, so it was a special all day occasion.
I have had these stools for years.
They were my Grandpa's.
So even though my hubby begged to throw them away at least once a month, I couldn't part with them.
I, finally, sanded & repainted them.
There were at least 4 layers of...I'm pretty sure...lead paint on them.
And they were really beaten up.
When my kids would sit on them, their pants would catch on slivers of the wood.
While sanding them in my driveway, a neighbor came over & asked if it was worth the work for a little stool.
I said, "Yes! They were my Grandpas!"
But, I'm also very happy with how they turned out.
What do you think?
I added the numbers to the top for fun.
My hubby & 15 year old son haven't stopped teasing me that we have a #1 & #2 stool.
Leave it to boys to have potty minds.
They make our little work station complete.
And I fixed the messy cord problem...
Ahhh, much better!
I stuck the power strip & cords inside the basket on the bottom for a much cleaner look.
I'm so excited to have them done!
But, I have to admit, after so many years, I kind of miss the orange paint.
Just a little.
Hope you're having a fantastic week!
