My re-vamped stool

My New craft stool.





I had a lot of pics to post, but not sure which folder I put them in. This is an old bar stool we found in the garage and was going to end up in the garbage. The lamp was a thrift find and I forgot to take a before shot, but take my word, it was dirty and rusty and I re-wired it for safety reason.
We still have another stool but the wooden seat is in bad shape, so Al is going to cut a new one and I will be painting it in black with a red print seat for my friend who has been helping me paint.
I started stripping an antique dressing table and I don't like the paint stripper Al brought to me, so will get what I normally use. I have many things to post, but it's slow to load, so will only do a few at a time. Crafting feels great again and I have a birdhouse that I was to put lace, scrapbook paper and some bling.
Prayers for my friends in Georgia and all the people affected by the floods. Such a sad thing. We also have been having rain almost every day and today was really bad.
Well I should be asleep and actually I did fall asleep at 6pm, but awoke around 10pm. I hope you all have a great weekend. Not sure if I made my 400th post yet, so will check and try to have a giveaway. Love, hugs, and blessings to all of you, Pat

Hi Pat. Thanks for coming by. Read your back posts. I cant offer a suggestion, but listen to the authorities. Your make overs are lovely. Soldering is very relaxing, when you get your computer hooked up, check out youtube, soldering. They'll show you how it is done. I urge you to give it a try. I'll even tell you the best place to get what you need to get going.

You craft stool makeover is amazing. What a transformation! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and saying hello. Like you, I long to have a bigger craft room too. But I am wondering if I would outgrow that in time too - LOL! I tend to fill the space I have, no matter how large.
