I found a new thrift store about 20 minutes from my house last week and it was like Christmas morning! It benefits Disabled American Vets like one of my favorite thrift stores, and it was amazing! I left with a full cart, ya’ll.
One of the items I found was this sweet $6 farmhouse stool and it is thrifty makeover #25! (Only six more left yikes!)
Everyone can use a little step stool, right?
I decided to stick with gray and white like my Farmhouse Headboard Bench I shared yesterday:
I actually started by painting it all white. But like many makeovers, I decided to change directions mid-project. I felt like it needed something else.
Then I remembered I had saved the numbers I used to make this Numbered Tray:
Numbered Tray (& a Free Download!)
I used contact paper and my silhouette machine to make a stencil for that tray, but I kept all of the numbers I had punched out…just in case!
I arranged them how I wanted them…
And then painted over in Behr’s Sparrow made into DIY chalk paint…
I peeled off the numbers right away, then sanded and sealed with Annie Sloan’s clear wax.
This is what happens when my youngest is home while I’m taking pictures:
He said Hulk wanted his picture taken too.
And look at those little piggies…not so little anymore!
Here they are two years ago sniff sniff…
I used him to model that little stool I redid for the boys’ bathroom. Time sure is flying by. I try to enjoy as many moments as I can!
Hope you liked this one. You could probably recreate this with number stickers as well!
Remember this drawer that came from this Crab Dresser I shared a couple of weeks ago?
I made something out of it and it will be tomorrow’s makeover! See ya then, Friends!
