A Vintage Crate + [work]

a grain sack industrial stool

Projects have been few and far between around here as of late. Maybe because I haven't had as much time to work on projects lately, or because it has been harder to find furniture to refinish. So instead I have been left to redo redo's. This stool was found at the thrift store a while ago. I can't remember what the original color of the seat was, but I had painted it blue, and soon got bored with it. It is made out of some sort of vinyl material that is perfect for painting. Because I am still enamored with grain sacks, I decided to give it a little faux treatment.With a little tan and red paint, and some masking tape, I was able to complete this in a mere 20 minutes, including drying time. I love the industrial look of the base.

I have been on the hunt for "new" old stools lately, with little luck. Here are a few I would love to find,

I would love to eventually have a variety of old industrial stools surrounding my island. You've got to start somewhere--I think this is a good start.
