Barstool Becomes Table

At Angie Gets Crafty, Angie was in need of a small table to put near her front door that would serve as a place to drop essentials like keys and work badges.  When she couldn’t find something affordable at the store, Angie “shopped” her dad’s house, where she found a weather beaten barstool that was just the right shape and size.

The stool required quite a bit of TLC…and bleach…to clean it up.  Once clean, Angie gave it a coat of glossy black paint and added granite shelves to transform it into a beautiful occasional table that perfectly suited her needs.  I’m so impressed that Angie thought to add those shelves–they really make the difference when it comes to this stool becoming a table.

Barstool Sawhorse Desk

After replacing her inexpensive barstools with new ones, Whitney from Shanty 2 Chic was about to pass the oldies along to someone else. That is, until inspiration struck to repurpose them into something chic!

Do those legs look familiar to you? Maybe a little like a sawhorse desk? {smile} Whitney added some furring strips to create small shelves and a pine panel for the top. Even a novice DIYer could tackle a building project like this one!
