A Vintage Stepstool Chair


Tucked into the corner of the kitchen is a recently found favorite item.


A vintage step stool chair in the perfect shade a white.


For over a year, I'd been looking for one and was delighted to find this one a couple months ago.  A better match would be hard to come by.  It's slightly rusty and some of the disressing on the egdges of the seat show it's red undercoat - - see what a mean, perfect for my red and white kitchen.


The kids liked it as much as I did - - for weeks I'd  find it all over the kitchen.  I'm just now able to use it for what I bought it for.  Display!


Love those legs! 


I simply placed a few items to reinforce the kitchens theme colors and called it a day.
Man! I love easy projects.

Any quick and easy projects happening in your home today?

  1. What an adorable stepstool! It looks like it was just waiting for you to find it. I could use one of those myself. At 5'1", I wish there was some way I could attach a cute one like that and carry it everywhere I go! lol!

    Hope your Monday is wonderful.

  4. What a great find! I still have my grandmother's stool that is just like yours and was originally red as well. I've painted it twice to match my decor and it's currently black. I love it because it's not only super handy but has so many wonderful memories attached to it. Enjoy your find!

  8. That's an awesome step stool! I love how vintage it looks. And the choppiness is lovely. My kids would be fighting over it all day! I love that bird house, too! So cool!

  11. Love the stool. My father-in-law brought us over a similar stool, but it needs some help before it can be displayed. You are inspiring me.

  13. I really like that use for it! And you're right - it's the perfect rusty, tattered patina!

  14. I love how you've decorated it! Great find. I used to have a wooden highchair in my kitchen that I would decorate, but every single time my nieces would come over they would throw (yes, throw!!!) my decor items onto the floor and pull the chair up to the island to sit on it. I gave up after a while and just used it for a chair. They are older now so I think I can safely pull it back out. Thanks for the inspiration!
