Five minute make over

P1070445Thrifted blue stool.  Sloppy paint job to begin with, and getting a bit grubby looking. (but not grubby in a GOOD way!  just dirty and ICKY looking!)  Needed a good sanding before I could do anything further with it.

P1070702Got out my trusty orbital sander and gave it a VERY quick once over.  Seriously, less than five minutes!

P1070703So then I stood back and pondered my next step for this stool.

P1070704It isn’t quite ‘my color’; but I’m kinds liking the faded denim look . . .

P1070705So I decided to stop there and leave it just sanded. Sometimes LESS word is just enough!  Like not further embellishing the chair; I can always bring it home later if it doesn’t sell and ‘do more work’ on it.

P1070748This little stool can be purchased for $19.00 in my booth at Stars Antiques in Portland.
