Stepping Stools

A little paint, some Mod-Podge, and wa-la....beautiful and functional too!

One of our neighbors was having some work done on a new garage.  The workman threw together these little stools to help them while they worked but, when the garage was complete, they set them at the curb for the trashmen....gasp, can you believe that?!

Quickly, I stopped, threw them in back and drove away without a word being said.  I think my kids have just decided that is easier to just not ask questions sometimes!

With a quick sanding, some happy colored paint, a little more sanding, and some Mod-Podged wrapping paper and they were as cute as they could be!

I love it when something old becomes beautiful and useful again!

Happy thrifty Tuesday!


Partying with these....please see our Partying tab for where else we might be seen!
