Country Whites Weekend #5 - A Simple Stool


Today is going to be a farmtastic Friday, don't you think!?!
I think so cause we can start the day off with a party...
Country Whites Weekend!
A big welcome to y'all...


Today, I want to share a simple stool with you.
Poor thang, it looks plain and pitiful.


I had it for sale and no one wanted it. So sad.
But, I still saw the potential.


I knew a little TLC would make all the difference. 


It was painted white at one time. 
Even the red vinyl seat was painted white and showed lots of wear and tear. 
I wanted to keep the worn and chipped white metal, so my plan was to get busy with that seat. 
I unscrewed the seat from the stool, removed the vinyl and used it as a pattern to cut out some burlap.



I had a small piece of burlap with a graphic on it that would add to the look I was going for.


I quickly sewed it on, stapled the burlap to the bottom of the seat, and screwed the seat back on.


Ta-da! It's no longer sad and now it's mine!

Now it's your turn.
It’s plain and simple and oh, so sweet.
Embrace your country whites and share them here!
Inspire us. Take us home. Fill us with country charm.

Hi Cindy,
I just love what you did to your stool. So farmhouse and charming. It looks wonderful in your decor. I totally missed this third week's white weekend. My goodness I can't believe it. I have been so busy, it just slipped by me. But I am enjoying visiting you and others.
Have a nice evening.
Hugs, CM
