Thrifty Stool Makeover



Here's my $1.75 "what was I thinking" rolling ottoman/shelf thing~~


Below is the before:





I used home~made chalk paint; added decorative trim to the front; padding; and a
vintage feed sack for the top.







I bought two of those metal/wire baskets; I love it tucked into the shelving area:




A big wicker basket looks kinda cute too~~




Sorry for the bad pics; too hot to be outside and my lighting is terrible in this room today~~

Oh, when I brought this home dear husband thought I'd lost my mind; his comment was something to the effect that $1.75 was too much.  Ha!

I love a project (or twenty), don't you?
