Chair/Step Stool Remodel

Sorry I've been such a slacker of blogger lately.  Busy at work doesn't really describe it but, that's the excuse I'll use.  After all, blogging doesn't pay the bills (come on your companies, you know you want on my sidebar ; ) ).

Anyway...I've been waiting to post about a chair remodel that Hubby and I did a few weeks ago.  I was so excited to find this chair in my grandma's barn.  I remember sitting on one just like it (except an avocado green) at my Great-Grandmother's house when i was tiny.  (yeah, I was one day).

Awesome Antique chair

Pull out foot rest to use as a step-stool
I began by brushing it with a wire brush and then using steel wool to remove as much of the rust as possible.  It was really rusty but otherwise in great shape.  Next, I used painters tape and white rustoleum spray-paint. 

Still looked pretty rough.
After the white spray paint was dry, I taped over it with the painters tape and painted the remainder of the chair with black rustoleum spray paint.                                                                                                                         

Sorry for the blurriness, but as you can see it took a lot of blue tape.

Hubby helped remove all the blue tape. (Diesel as usual was there for moral support, or to get in the way.)

After all the painting was complete, the chair looked pretty good.

We bought some new rubber caps for the bottom of the chair.  The ones we removed were falling apart from dry rot.

Once they were attached to every leg we were finally finished with the chair/step stool.

I'm really happy with the results.  And, its handy!

Lots of product reviews and giveaways I want to post this week so keep on the lookout for some cool new products and tasty treats you might just be able to try yourself.  Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
