I have to admit these up cycles are Fun . The first one you can see here. This actually was my grandmother's stool. My parents had stored it in a building, that they kept the pool chemicals in, and major rust had set in.
I took some steel wool to the chrome on this item and, figured out real quickly, that I do not have the elbow grease nor the ambition to clean it all up. So I resorted to old faithful "Rustoleum". The color I am attached to now is Oil Rubbed Bronze not only is it a fantastic color but the coverage is awesome. I also had a stash of remnants that were on sale for 50% off at Jo Ann's and found a perfect cheap match.
The end results!
A fab. Kitchen step stool!
The fabric is the perfect color!
The paint has disguised the rust.
Even from the side this one looks good!
Hope that you are warm on this brisk fall day!
