You might walk by this unassuming stool at a thrift shop, but Charlotte saw potential. See how she gave this flea market find a fresh facelift.
Back when birds were chirping and grass wasn't buried by 24" of snow, I grabbed this wheelie stool at the Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, CT. The seller clearly thought he was getting the good end of the deal charging me $10. But a simple coat of spray paint later, and it has a new lease on life. I considered upholstering the seat as well, but I ultimately kept the wood visible because it gave the stool a more industrial a feel. And, heck, it made the facelift that much easier!
