That inspiration came in the form of an old stool I had finally decided to send to the curb. It was a VERY old stool. In fact, when I turned it over I found that the stool had originally belonged to my daughter back when she thought she had to label everything as her own. (Maybe 12-13ish?)
She is now married with a daughter of her own!
Anyway, here is how the project went:
|First I lowered the legs to give the table stability, and to fit the size I had in mind.|
|Next I gave both the chair and the table a couple of coats of this textured paint I already had on hand. |
I'm not in love with the color, but it will have to do for now.
|Next, I plopped the top onto the stool and drilled holes here and there through the stool. |
I fed a strand of strong wire through the holes from the top.
|Then I turned it over and gave the wire a few strong twists and cut off the ends. |
(I'm kinda bummed I didn't think to leave my daughter's name.)
|I turned it back over and gave the whole thing another coat of paint.|
|And here it is in its new home, ready to show off a few plants or, with a couple of chairs, |
serve as a child's table at an outdoor dinner.
I'm loving that I have a table just the right size I was looking for, and it was free to boot!
Until next time,
