A pretty little stool.

Well today I had some fun up-cycling this pretty little stool.
This $5 beauty was all ready to be fixed up.

I have to admit I wasn't looking for a stool when I found this guy at a thrift store....butttt I decided it was better than nothing....
You see, I have been SEARCHING for something to paint
 with my birthday paint and just can't seem to find a thing!


This just happened to be a perfect little mini project.


Enough to make me really really start wishing for 
bigger and better treasures to use my chalk paint on!


But sometimes it is the little projects that make a BIG difference in a room.
Anddd even though I am wining a lot, I am glad this guy ended up in my living room!



I also must note that I loved using a vintage salt sack for the project instead 
of new fabric like I had originally thought I was going to use.

What do you think?  Would you up-cycle something like this?  
I love that it was a way to add a pop of color to my room!  
Anddd the best part was that the total time spent on this project was less than 30 min.
:o)

I am linking up to a few of these amazing parties----check them out---they will most definitely inspire you!

Dear Jaime,

I would like it very much if you would please move to Australia and bring with you your luck of finding awesome pieces of furniture to upcycle.

I have been looking for a table around this size for quite some time now, but have had no luck. Nor have I had any luck finding some cheap doors for using as a headboard for my bed.

I am extremely jealous of your finds lol!

Enjoy your day : )

Another great project! Being that we are from Chicago and love the companies that define our city I am so smitten with your vintage salt bag. Where did you find it? I have even considered dressing up as the Morton Salt girl for Halloween...LOL There's a little random fact for ya!

I love this. I haven't used ASCP, but I do have some I am wanting to use. Just looking for the right piece to paint. The more I see it used, the more I want to use it!

Great DIY project. You really transformed that dated stool into something so unique. I love the colours you have chosen and how you have used a vintage salt sack. It looks like a very expensive piece of furniture!

Jamie I must say even though I have just started following you about a week ago, I LOVE looking through you DIY projects. I wish I could find some finds like you do!
These turned out beautiful, I love the salt sacks. Any ideas/hints where a girl can find some?

Really cute! Duck Egg is one of my favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors, along with the Paris Grey and Provence. The Old White is a great basic too. I loved the vintage salt sacks...where did you find them? I will be shopping at the Pasadena Rose Bowl in August, and will be on the lookout!
