Bedroom Stools…


Last fall I posted about a girls getaway to the California coastal resort of Seascape…see post here.

While we were out and about hitting the local boutiques and antique shops, we happened to drive by a garage sale. As an experienced garage-saler from early childhood (thanks Mom)!
I immediately spotted something sitting on the driveway that I just had to check out.
“Stop the car!” I instinctively yelled, surprising all of the ladies in the car who had not even noticed the sale.

We made a quick u-turn and I found these…

A pair of rattan side tables…asking price $5.00…for both…SOLD!!

They did have some glass squares for the tops, but I tossed them because they were all chipped and I planned to use these tables for another purpose anyway.

I love the look and function of a bedroom bench or stools placed at the foot of the bed and I have been pinning inspiration pics onto my Master Bedroom pin board on Pinterest seen here.

Here are a few of my favorites…

With some paint, fabric, and a little bit of creativity, I think these two tables will make the perfect pair of bedroom stools.

Here is a look at where I plan to use them…

I recently ordered this fabric from Fabric.com to cover the stools…

Now, just waiting for the fabric to arrive so I can start this project. Do you have a summer project in the works?

  3. OOhhh..I love them Laura! What a great find - and I love how you stopped the car. That is a seasoned professional and someone with a good eye. These are going to be perfect for the end of your bed - and I love that you can move them around wherever you need to as well.
