Show and Tell Monday- Garage Sale Stool

I have been SO busy working in my classroom lately and trying to get everything ready for my little 2nd graders! It kind of feels like my "To-Do" list is just getting longer and longer.


I found this cute little stool at a garage sale a few weeks ago. It had major potential and was only $2, so of course I HAD to get it!


It definately needed some major repairs, but luckily I have Jared to do that for me. 


I spray painted it using this color... which is one of my FAVORITES right now!


Used some zebra fabric that I already had to recover the cushion. OH and it swivels too!


And that was that! Super quick and easy make-over! I can't wait to put this cutie in my classroom. LINKING UP!

Very cute -- and that's also my favorite color of spray paint, too.

I love seeing fun repurposed furniture! This will look amazing in your classroom. I actually just repainted my kitchen chairs last week with that EXACT same krylon color! I got the last bottle in the store, so it must be popular :)
