I love strolling through the aisles of flea markets.
It's relaxing, fun, and all that walking IS exercise, you know.
You also meet friendly people.
Just today, in fact, I met two women who are also Pinterest Mavens.
Of course, we exchanged account info and now have new Pinterest friends.
Recently, at our local Topanga Vintage Flea Market,
I fell head over heels with this adorable stool.
It was actually in pretty good shape:
a nice vinyl cushion and a naturally aged-distressed metal frame.
Did I say distressed? I love distressed furniture,
but in this case, I actually wanted to de-distress it.
After dismantling the seat, I recovered it with printed burlap.
I could've left it just like this and called it a day.
However, I had other plans for this treasure.
Now which color to choose?
I narrowed it down to these four:
antique white, black, white and sunflower (a very soft yellow).
A few coats of paint later, 20 minutes to dry, and seat cushion back in place,
and I had a new (well oldish new) Parisian theme stool.
Now, where to place it?
In the foyer?
Near the fireplace? Yes, the perfect place for a cup of tea.
Now that I'm back in the groove,
what's my next transformation going to be?
Check back soon!
