Thrifty Find- Milking Stool

 Hello my friends!

I found this cute little stool last weekend.

It was half-price on furniture day

at one of my favorite thrift stores.

At first I thought I just wanted the legs-

but they were nice and tight.

For now it's a keeper-

I stained the stool with 

WATCO Danish Oil Finish in Dark Walnut and a soft cloth.

I was thinking about painting the stool-

I usually have to stencil everything, but for some reason 

I wasn't in the mood.

I liked the way it looked, just with the stain.

For SPRING, I placed some of my vintage tablecloths

on my blanket ladder.

I put the stool in front for now.

My daisies are just beginning

to bloom!

Since it's a milking stool, 

I put some daisies in a few glass cream bottles.

These small stools make great risers for vignettes.

That's about all I have been up to this week-

I hope you have a great week!

  6. Great find and you finished it up so nicely. It would make a great plant stand since you couldn't take the legs off. Glad you didn't though and remade it better. Thanks for sharing. #HomeMattersParty
