After a nice coat of paint from Home Depot...they sell itty bitty jars of paint, any color for under 3.00. Who knew? I chose a yellow color and wondered if I would be happy with it...and I must say, yes, yes I am. I then used the sander a bit and added a bit of dark stain. Easy peacy...
So now I have a "vintage like" step stool, in my kitchen.
Of course, this is a very modern style stool, so you can only do so much.
Off to see what else I can paint this wonderful yellow color.
