My latest "saved from the scrap heap" project

My sister came by a few weeks ago and was headed to the thrift store with some things she was clearing out.  In the middle was this old "retro" stool.  She bought it at a garage sale last year but didn't do anything with it.  Was missing one of the rubber feet. The vinyl seat had been mended with red plastic tape and the crome legs were spotty with rust.  But the plastic back was so neat and just needed a good cleaning.  So here is the before:
Next was the scrubbing and painting:


I then recovered the old seat and put it all back together!


Total cost for paint and new rubber feet was about 8$  Have it sitting at the end of an isle of books and have had one customer use it, plus I had my sister sit on it the other day on my little back steps at the store while I cut her hair.  LOL  we had several folks go by the alley and throw off their caps and asked to be next.  Can't get away with anything in this little town!

Thought for the day:Where ever you go, there you are

Ah...so you know that the key is to actually do something with the stuff you spot as having potential. I I know what you mean when you say that when you see something you start thinking about what can be done with it....I see stuff and projects come into my mind...but I know I have to be careful because I shouldn't do al that I conceive! I'm going to peek around your blog now.
