Welcome to Transformation Tuesday, a place where Monday’s junk is transformed into glammed up treasures. This week, I made over two of my barstools that we currently use and two that I found on the curb that match. I also make a towel rack/toothbrush holder from a board I picked up on one of my junk tours through my ‘hood.
I love these barstools. We used to have 6 of them, but garage sold 4 of them year ago. Recently, I found another two curbside and lugged them home. I had planned to paint and sell, but after I made over all four I just can’t let them go.
I saw this board on the street and snagged it. It’s already cut down and the perfect little sign size. However, I had another vision for it.
I gave it a quick sanding and slapped on some chalkboard paint. I ordered this precious little hook awhile back knowing I’d use it in the kids’ bathroom eventually. I chalked on a little top hat, because this guy is fancy.
I added some clamps and mason jars to hold the toothpaste and toothbrushes.
The bar stools were done with my easy chalk paint recipe.
Easy Chalk Paint Recipe:
2 cups latex paint
6 TBSP Plaster of Paris
3 TBSP water
Mix water and Plaster first until smooth. Mix in paint until smooth. Store leftovers in airtight container for up to a week. (I’ve started keeping it stored in mason jars which keeps for quite a long time. Just shake now and again).
That wraps up this installment of Transformation Tuesday. As you can see, I try to keep as much as I part with. Such is the life of a junker like me.
Stay tuned for my next segment of Transformation Tuesday.
