Here’s a peek at the finished product!
This lovely step stool is what I was using before for my Sunbeam Hot Pot….the office provides coffee in unlimited quantities but I don’t drink coffee. I do love me a cup of hot tea though! Who knew they even made the Hot Pot any more? I used one of these in my dorm room in the 1970s! Anyway, this situation worked, but was a bit unhandy!
I found this little one drawer table at a thrift store called Love, Inc. It’s a great little store and they provide a lot of furniture and kitchen things for immigrants and displaced families. I only paid $10 for it! It was a January day in the 60s so I hauled out the spray paint and my drop cloth (some folks may call them tarps, but that doesn’t sound as good to me!).
I primed it with some leftover Krylon primer and then used Krylon Ocean Splash on it. Love that color. It was looking pretty plain by that time.
Hmmm, what to do…
I tried to fall in love with it this way…just couldn’t do it, so I painted a greenish blue stripe on the top of it…
Cute huh? Hard to see the stripes though…
So here it is in the office…hides a couple of ugly computer/fax hook up outlets so that is a plus. But best of all it holds my Hot Pot and my teas and Splenda, and a few other goodies!
I also painted the drawer the same color as the stripes on top which is a custom mixed color (by moi of course!).
I distressed a bit around the edges and on the legs, mostly to cover up some painting flaws (there, I said it!) and I love it like that!
I am linking to these great parties!
