A Farmhouse Stool

For years I've longed to find a farmhouse style stool.  I've come across small ones, wobbly ones, and not so fabulous ones but never the perfect one.

That all changed with a trip to the thrift store last week.  Sitting in the furniture section was the perfect sized, non-wobbly stool.  It was paint splatter but solid and for only four dollars I quickly put it in my cart feeling like a thief - - but giggling to myself over my amazing find.

After two coats of cheerful red spray paint, my farmhouse stool is looking oh so perfect in the corner of the kitchen.  I have a feeling this beauty will be moving around the house quite a bit but for now I'm loving it in the corner.

To get started on my Autumn decorating, I dug out three small jack O lanterns that I had given a face-lift to last year.  The kids love them since they light up and now that I've taken care of the nasty orange color they original were I'm loving them too!

If your at all interested in making one for yourself, you can revisit the post on it here.

Have a great weekend everyone.
