The upside of going to an estate sale on the last day is the discounted price. Like this garage stool that was $5 at the beginning of the estate sale was now $1 on the last day. Right then and there I knew it was going to be a side table in my living room.
Of course I had to clean and scrub it from top to bottom since it spent its life in the garage and I painted the top with Graphite and the rest of the body with Old Ochre, both colors from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
But that wasn't enough for me...a close friend of mine had given me a wooden crate and I kindly asked my husband to take apart the crate and decided to only use the side with the advertisement and attach it to the stool.
