Farmhouse Stool Recycle – a DIY Makeover Project with so many uses!

Farmhouse stools are an easy DIY makeover project and there are so many practical and pretty ways to use them around your house!

 

Lately, I have been obsessed with doing a farmhouse stool recycle. They are all over Pinterest and I pined away about doing one.  You know how it is when you have an idea in your mind and you know exactly what you want but can’t find it?

Recently, I got really lucky!  I have gone to the same Goodwill store for years and never saw even one. Then, on my last two trips, they had matching pairs. I snapped those babies up and left the store both times will a stool under each arm. After getting home, all four got painted and then I started dreaming about where I could put them.

These beauties are from Goodwill for $4 each. Drats, the tops are made from particle board…but I bought them anyway.

Another Goodwill find. There were two of them so I got them both for $5 each. Yippee…the seat is real wood! Both sets were spray painted with Rustoleum, the brown ones got Bright White High Gloss and the green ones were painted with Heirloom White in satin.

I started in the bathroom. Place a stool next to the tub to hold soap, towels or whatever you use. The great thing about these stools is that they are light and can be moved around easily.

Plenty of room to hold a relaxing candle or two.

The white farmhouse stool looks so fresh next to the drab patio pavers. I did have to bring this one in every time it rained, so it now has a home in the screened back porch.

The laundry basket is from HomeGoods and fits just right on top of the stool. I wanted one of those cute vintage wire laundry carts but they are out of my budget, so I came up with this to put the kitchen laundry in. Anyway, the laundry room is really plain right now so I only did a close shot of the basket. But this room next on my to-do list and I promise I will share everything with you!

The stool had a particle board top that I did not discover until I removed the faux leather seat cover.   Wrapping the top in white vinyl to make it waterproof might work.  What do you think?  I am open to suggestions.

Next to the pantry cabinet there is an open spot that is too small for a chair but not wide enough for much else. I stuck the stool in there with a basket of cookbooks and an IKEA towel and it fills the little spot pretty well.
