It’s thrift store makeover time, we have lots of ideas to share! I’m sharing a wooden step stool makeover, a quick and easy idea that you can use on a finished or unfinished step stool. I used my favorite DIY tool: spray paint. You can makeover one of these in less than an hour.
Be sure to check out all the ideas from our Thrift Store Decor Team at the end of the post.
A wood step stool comes in handy in any room of the house. I have several. This small one doesn’t take up much space, sometimes I sit plants on them when not in use.
- Lightly sand wooden stool.
- Wipe/clean dust and debris from stool.
- Spray paint, light coverage according to the directions on the spray paint can.
- Allow piece to dry completely.
- Using a transfer or stencil with chalk paste or paint add farmhouse charm.
- Finish your project with a clear top coat.
I love the coverage of the 2X Rustoleum paint but you can use any paint for this project. Brush on or spray.
Wooden Step Stool Makeover Step-by-Step
Step 1: Go get yourself a wooden step stool!
I found this beauty at a thrift store and decided I loved it so much I just had to do a project with it!
Step 2: Grab your sanding block and get busy
Before we paint this thing, we have to sand it down to make sure our spray paint has a nice surface to adhere to.
Lightly sand and then wipe it clean!
Step 3: Spray paint the step stool
Now we need to get some color on it. Place the stool bottom up and start applying light, even coats of spray paint until it looks covered all over.
Once you’ve spray painted it bottom-side up, let it dry, then flip it right-side up and finish the top.
Step 4: Give your step stool some decoration
I used one of my favorite Chalk Couture transfers for the design on top. Y’all know I love anything with a farmhouse style.
