Now tell me, if you saw this laying on the side of the road would you pick it up? This stool fell under what my husband calls "there's a reason people throw things away" category. I didn't see what he saw, instead I saw great legs and structure.

That's how this..


And believe it or not, this is pretty much what I saw the day I picked it up. Hope you enjoy!
By the way, this post is dedicated to my brother-in-law, Chris who thought it was impossible for me to restore. I think I wowed him... Oh ye of little faith.

What a cute little stool. The fabric and paint color are great.. Thanks for sharing with us at the POPP.

That does look wonderful. Isn't "vision" a wonderful curse?
I'm always picking up stuff that nobody can find any redeeming qualities about. Like your husband and his "there's a reason it was thrown away" category. I'm always so shocked that they can't see how awesome a find really is! And yet these same people always love the piece after it's done.
I call it a curse 'cause it can make you feel so "out there" when folks around you don't get it. That is one of the reasons I started blogging. In Blogland there are plenty of kindred spirits who can see just as well as you do! Btw, I found you thru the popp and am signing up to follow you.

Very nice! You chose the perfect fabric.

Miss Mustard Seed said...

I agree with Sherry...the fabric is perfect for that piece. Great work!

Just found you through a fellow dumpster diver. So happy to meet someone else with vision. I once hauled a small "barn fresh"(mouse nest in drawer) dresser home from a flea mkt.for $25. The price was orig. $45.) and was told I had one week to get it OUT of the garage. One week later it stood next to HIS side of the bed and now resides in the Living Room w/the new flat screen on it and components inside! He's learnin'!!
