So many wonderful things just waiting to be found at the thrift store. Like this beachy footstool makeover ready for it’s brand new life!
Happy Trash to Treasure Tuesday Friends!
I love this day of the month. :)
It’s my favorite thing to do! Turn trash into treasure.
Love, love, love to do it.
Just take a walk through my house and that’s evident.
Today’s trash to treasure is a small little thing but I love it! (and use it too)
Can you guess?
Yep, it’s that tiny little footstool. (oh, yeah, it’s in the title of this post ;) )
You can also see it in my “DIY Built In Bookcase” post.
I know I mentioned I’d have the full tutorial for the built in last month but it’s pretty involved and I didn’t get to it.
I am planning it for this month though! :)
I picked this sweet, little (and cheap!) footstool up for a few dollars at the thrift store.
Poor little fella.
But I fixed it right up! A little paint always makes everything better.
M A T E R I A L S L I S T:
I used Persian Blue on the legs for this beachy footstool makeover…
…and Snow White on the top….
As you can see, I didn’t really try to cover it well. I wanted it a bit distressed looking.
I actually ended up sanding it a bit all over to make it look “old and worn”.
My little beachy footstool is so cute, I love it. And it’s perfect when sitting at the desk with tired feet!
Pin this for later! :)
Now let’s see what my friends are up to this month! :)
If you’ve missed any of my previous trash to treasure transformations, you can see them here >>> “Trash to Treasure“.
I’ll see you guys on Thursday with some “farmhouse” decor with my decorating buddies.
Mine is a little DIY, a little driftwood-ish and a little whitewash-ish too. ;)
