Ice Cream Stool

Projects continue to spring from my abyss of a garage.  I just finished this ice cream stool today.




I showed you one idea for an ice cream stool base in "A Pleasant Surprise". 



Just a reminder how they started.




This one I'm actually using as a stool, because I found a seat.  I have no idea how long I've had this round seat, or what it came off of, but it works.





I cleaned, and sealed the base, followed by a dry brush of white paint.  I covered the seat in drop cloth material, and draped one of the chandelier napkins I designed over the top for a casual look.  I just attached the corners with a dab of hot glue.




What do you think?

  11. Whoa Rosemary!
    First off, I actually loved the rusty stools as found-so rustic.
    Then I loved the table you made, then the candle holder (spectacular!), now the stool. You could even put a plant in place of the candle, add a metal topiary and have the plant grow up. You are so talented, I love your vision.
