Today I am sharing my latest DIY hack, and this one is actually from Lowe's! I think everyone has one of those, right?
Anyway, I love the look of ceramic garden stools. I think they are an easy trendy element to bring into your home for an updated look. I don't really like the price though.
Like this guy. On sale, he is $100. And he is ceramic, which doesn't have a long life ahead of itself in a household with 4 boys. I couldn't justify spending $200 on a pair of these stools that obviously would be super-glued back together sooner rather than later. But THEN, I found these:
Stainless steel and $40. More durable and cheaper?! YES!
I purchased two for $80 and bought two cans of gold spray paint and one can of primer spray paint for $18. Please don't forget your primer spray paint! These are powder coated, which makes it hard for just spray paint to adhere to - you definitely need a primer coat!
Spray both of your stools down with your primer coat, and allow it to set for one hour. Then, spray gold! Or how awesome would a mirrored paint be? Or radiant orchid? There are so many possibilities! I only let my stools dry about another hour, and they were ready to go.
What do you think? Do you have any good hacks or DIY projects as of late? I'd love to hear!
