Tranformation Tuesday: Making Over Monday’s Junk {Bar Stools & a Towel Rack/Toothbrush Holder}

transformation tuesday series on

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.
