It's amazing what inspires a DIY project in my world. This week, I was in Targay. Just minding my own biznis. Stocking my cart with essentials (tee pee, Windex, whoppers). And I sauntered onto the Threshold for Target isle. I spotted this accent stool with the wooden bench and I suddenly I envisioned the sucker sitting in the middle of my kids' Jack and Jill bathroom. In the shared bathroom that they don't even use (because they insist on bathing in MY bathroom instead).
I loaded this baby into my cart and immediately started to think of ways I could further make this my own. Ok, not much you can do to a metal stool and a wooden bench. But we got home and I had the kiddies help me add some white racing stripes to the legs. (Proof below). Just enough to say..."hey, yes, I may have gotten this at target, but then I took an extra twenty minutes and did a craft project to it so it's not so apparent that I got it at target."
I couldn't find my painter's tape, so yes, we used the sticky masking tape from the febreeze lint brush. That's creativity!
End Results. (Photos taken with iphone when sun was blaring into the room! And no, I just couldn't wait for a better time of day or use a better camera for the shot because I'm too impatient).
Remember my removable wallpaper project? Read more about it here.

Fun little afternoon project.
Also, I'm making progress on the mudroom make over. I'll have more to share with you soon! (PS, I got EG to approve the West Elm console purchase and it's in the mudroom--love). Other items have been added, too and I'll have photos to share soon.
