round & round she goes




i bought this stool a while back from a dealer, but it needed a wee bit sanding before i brought it into the apt. well, it is saturday and it is in the 80's and the rooftop is calling my name and i have one of those handy dandy sanding bricks ready for action.

so, the sanding took about 5 minutes....and done. i'm not sure why i waited so long to do this project. the green paint on the base of this stool is super perfect. oh, and on the wood there are drops of kelly green paint that totally make me smile.

it is from belgium and was a steel of a deal.

thanks lee!
it is a relief as i had a bench there that was collecting clothes and by mid week there was an official pile.
i hope this cuts down on that pile a bit.

The stool is a cutie but I have to be honest - it would certainly limit my time spent on the computer - which would NOT be a bad thing - LOL!

red ticking - yes, desk has some memories. it has also been a kitchen table, entry console and now resides as desk. alot of life for a 3 year old find :)

laura- yes, that is another good reason...less time on that monster computer. xoxo

There's nothing like a little 'factory chic' teamed up with high-tech and a rustic table.
Looks fab darling!

Loving your home more, the more I see of it.
