Fini - FINALLY!!!



Way back on October 15th I showed you a couple of really nice stools I found on Craigslist for $50 for the pair. I have been wanting to change out my counter stools for quite a while now. Why it took me two months to complete a day project
is beyond me.
Well . . . that's pretty much how I am. Takes me forever to get home dec projects done.

Anyway, I finally finished them last night, and I'm thrilled with how they turned out. I could kick myself for dragging my feet on this project. I could have been enjoying these stools at least 59 days ago!

Present New Fabulous Stools


Here's a picture of the old, rickety, 16-year old stools that have been retired.


Here are the new stools before the amazing transformation. (And a peak at my then, well still now, mess of a garage!)


Before


After


Now, if I could just get myself motivated to tackle the . . . oh . . . dozen other furniture/home dec projects on my to-do list!
