DIY Chalk Painted Side Table

You can turn an old stool into a trendy side table with a little Folkart chalk paint!

I have started to embrace alley trash. Stay with me...

When I say alley trash, I actually mean alley treasures! I find so many pieces of furniture that have been placed in my alley to die. That is, until I see these treasures and scoop them up for a makeover! One day, I saw an old beat up stool in my alley and (of course) had to grab it. Now, at first, I wasn't sure how I was going to transform my stool. My first thought was to keep it as a stool, until I noticed it was missing a rung at the bottom making it a little wobbly. I didn't want to throw my stool back in the alley, so I waited until I came up with another idea to repurpose it.

I was at my home-away-from-home, Home Depot, when my eyes came upon a round piece of wood perfect for a small table top. I could add the round piece of wood to the top of my stool, transforming it into a cute side table! Once I landed on my idea, I knew with a little help from Folkart Chalk Paint and some gold spray paint this piece of furniture would be back in business!
