Thrifted gold dipped stool makeover
Well we’re at it again… another trip to Goodwill in a week! We were dared to find a thrifted piece and change it to create something beautiful.
Well little did Taylor know we love the hunt of finding a treasure between shabby or out of style items throughout Goodwill so as soon I spied this heavy stool that was needing a facelift, I carried it right to checkout! Bam. For just $10 dolla. Holla!
I know it wasn’t much to deserve a second glance but did you see those legs?! I am a sucker for spindly legs! Oh, hello there Winston. (Isn’t our 9-week old Boston the cuuuutest?! We are pretty infatuated with him.) Anyway, I ripped the dirty fabric + padding off and tossed it straight away. Gross.
Chalk paint powder is our current go-to for painting furniture and anything wooden, really. (Did you catch our thrifted wooden heart makeover earlier this week?) Love how this powder covers home decor as well as large pieces easily so I knew I would use it for this piece as well.
After gently mixing 2 tbs. of powder with 1 tbs. of water, I would normally pour it into a sample pot size of latex paint from Home Depot but because I am using this same hue on another piece this week I added more powder + paint and opted for a squeeze bottle to store it in. (This current color crush is Peridot by Behr. Gorg!) I then gave it a little shake shake shake shake (oh, Taylor!) then brushed it on the stool (no sanding or priming!!!) with the best paint brush known to man.
This new piece will be in Kristi’s new house she is prepping to build on the lot behind me, (yay!)
I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of it on the blog… and definitely more of Winston, too. 🙂

I love the color….and your photos. Thank you.
This is so adorable. I am in love with mint and I just painted my kitchen that color. I never thought about using gold with it, but I am loving it. I think I am going to start painting my fixtures gold and some other decor pieces! YAY I feel so inspired right now! Please take a second and stop by and link up with me! I would be honored to have you!! Pinned and shared! Have a fab week!
So happy you like it, Jess! Gold is way too fun!
LOVE this, I can’t wait to try that powder out!
It’s the best!!
Okay. First of all, this is crazy adorable. Anything with mint and gold has won my heart. And then, you share the picture with the little dog sitting on it… DYING!
I love the color….and your photos 🙂 This is an adorable transformation. Also, I’ve painted tons of furniture but have never used BB Borsch before…where can I but it?
Thank you so much! We adore BB Frosch!! A game changer for SURE!! We sell it in our shop (you can save shipping if you’re local). It’s so affordable and you’re not limited to boutique color choices!!

Love all the elements you used! I always find things at Goodwill, but don’t have the vision to see what they could be! We’re in the process of decorating my daughter’s room though, so I’ll have to try stretch a little 🙂
We don’t always see the potential in items but I couldn’t pass up this piece because of its legs. We have purchased things before and lost interest in them before we made them over and donated them back to Goodwill! lol Have fun decorating! 🙂
