Surprise Find

With the first signs of spring this week, we headed outside to work in the yard.  While I was raking leaves in the drive way; I caught glimpse of a diamond in the rough.  The previous owners left this old metal stool in the garage.  We have lived here 7 years and I never gave it much thought. When I looked at it the other day,  it looked  different then it had in the just needed a little makeover.

My husband of course thinks that I am crazy... "what are you going to do with that ugly thing"

Why does he doubt me....

Never doubt a girl with a couple hours to kill, spray paint, glue and vintage ribbon.  Now we have a new addition to our little kitchen redo.
And let me not forget one of my most favorite people in blogging is having a linky party on March 21st.  I love the idea to share your everyday kitchen.  Head over to Tracy's blog Loving Pretty Things to check out the details.
