#makeovermonday / a boring $15 stool from Walmart

We bought this stool 8 years ago when we moved into our home.

It was in the clearance section at Walmart and it served the purpose – to put in our bathroom at the vanity section of our sink.

I’ve never really been crazy about the stool, but hey, it works!

And so tonight, my goal for #makeovermonday was to get that top off and at least recover it with some kind of material that I like better.

It only took 4 little screws and it came off easily.

I had planned on a quick 15 minute project.

But THEN…

I couldn’t stand it.

I. Had. To. Paint. Y’all.

All I could think about was how much cuter this stool would be white (famous last words).

And this is as far as I got in 30 minutes of painting. This is a metal stool and my Valspar Exterior primer still covers metal, but it takes longer to dry. It needs another coat, so I’m not finished with this project yet.

But, I wanted to see what the top would look like before finishing the paint.

I used the same material that I used on another stool a few months ago because I love it so much!

I just started stapling right over the material that was there.

Here is an idea of what the stool will look like (after I finish painting, of course).

I’m not totally sold on this one to be honest. Not sure if I will like the material for the top or not with the white. I’ll just have to wait and see and keep you posted next week 🙂

Happy Monday, friends!
