Before and After: A Thrift Shop Stool

This little stool was unearthed at a Jacksonville, FL thrift store and purchased for under $5. As you can see, its upholstery was not only in terrible shape, but quite dated, and the stool's wood frame was also badly damaged. It was simply begging for a little paint, fabric, and a DIY weekend! Want to see how it was transformed?

Who would of thought that ugly old stool could look so cute!? I love the bold choice of bright chartreuse and the graphic light blue seat fabric.

Green is not my favorite color but I love this!! The green, blue and purple is totally unexpected and very pretty. I love going to thrift stores but I usually come out with books or picture frames. I never see furniture I like, but I haven't given up. I really need a small ottoman.

Thrift stores can be a goldmine for these! You can usually just take the fabric off and recover the foam or seat. If it's damaged, you'd want to cover a small piece of plywood with new foam and your fabric.

I love the colors she chose. That green with the purple artwork is so creative.
