Upcycled Thrifted Stool

What with its being Thanksgiving tomorrow, and you have family matters to attend to, here's the quickest fairy tale ever told. You ready?
Once upon a time, this stool lived happily ever after.

Now, the lengthier version, complete with character development and motives and greed, is as follows:
Once upon a time, a stool started out, alone and ugly and outcast, at a thrift store. Because the Kind & Patient Queen of the Land (ahem) needed one more stool at her kitchen counter to keep her three adorable children from greedily fighting over the two existing stools, she nabbed it.

The Queen bought it for pennies, brought it home, cleaned it off, spray painted it a plum color selected by the lovely and strong-willed 4-yr-old Princess, and added antique glaze so it wouldn't stand out too much from the other old and "real-time" distressed stools, even though it's a different color.
The Queen proceeded to bake herself a rewarding batch of cookies and managed to refrain from eating two of them before snapping this pic. She quickly devoured them after the shot.

The end.

  1. what a fun color! i love how rich it is!

    1. Plum is, in my opinion, an oft-overlooked color that deserves more attention. I agree with you, Cassie -- it's fun and rich and pretty, all rolled into one. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. ooh, love the color! So cute!

    1. Aw, thanks, Meg! I could (who am I kidding...I DO) spend a long time in the spray paint aisle. So hard to choose sometimes. :)
