Repurposed bar stool table finished

I showed you this much of it a few days ago along with some other ‘in the works’ projects.

Michael attached the stool to the thrifted wood top by screwing through the bottom.

The legs of this bar stool were in very good shape, so I wanted to see if I could use them ‘as is’.   I painted the top my signature aqua blue, then sanded.  The wood showing through the top was too light to match the color of the legs, so I applied a quick coat of stain ON TOP of the painted and sanded top.  Let the stain dry overnight, then applied 2 coats of a water based matte varnish.  finite!

These are very handy little tables for using around the house as a lamp table, bedside table, plant stand, end table or even a little kitchen table ‘for two’.  They are GREAT for use in retail displays too.  I loved using lots of round tables for display when we had our shop.  (no corners to bump into!)  And for some reason ROUND just seems more ‘inviting’.

  1. Love the table, AJ – but what I’m really (really !) loving is the chippy green/white door in the background ! Will you have that for sale somewhere ? I’m sorry to see that you are moving out of Camas – Stars is a bit further for me from La Center but I will certainly make the trip there to keep buying your treasures ! Hope you are enjoying the spectacular Summer that FINALLY arrived ! Blessings, Patti

  2. It turned out great! I love that color too. Have a great day!
