Vintage Step Stools


H got the bid on a bright yellow vintage step stool a couple of Saturdays ago....$3.    I knew I had one at home , but didn't realize that the two would be "twins"    Just alike,  except one was dull green and the other bright yellow.


I decided to put them together to make a plant stand for the back yard.


A couple of coats of Valspar pink spray paint and they looked like they had always been together.....
 

I laid a pink shutter across the seats to set plants on....


The steps add extra "shelves" to set more garden whimsy on.....


Are you ready for Easter?       


The weather is supposed to be mild here on Easter Sunday,   perfect for a egg hunt in the back yard and a big family dinner on the front porch farm table!

  2. Oh Penny I have been wondering what you & Mr. H was up to. Everyday I would go to your blog. Now I see. Love those step stools. Yes they look like they go together, but I am sure you will be using them in other places before the summer is over with. Good job.Your out side is as pretty as the inside." Happy Easter"

  4. Penny,
    Fantastic idea!! My neighbor has one. The house that we take care of and the sons told me to take what I want from. I was trying to think what I could do with it and now I know...a plant stand!! Thanks for the inspiration that you dish out in every post! I am finally feeling better since my BP meds were adjusted and my BP is normal again... Happy Easter!!
    Hugs,
    Debbie

  18. How fun to visit your backyard, and how lucky of you to find a twin step stool! Love the display stand you created with them. Those piggies and sheep are adorable, well, your entire yard is!

  19. WOW love your backyard, it's amazing! A step stool like that is on my must have list, but it won't be pink, I think black and jadeite fit my home so much better. Thanks for linking up to Friday Frenzy at Little House Big Alaska : )

  23. You always amaze me with how you think outside the box with items. You find new uses for things outside what it was intended for and it totally works! Then you arrange it in such a way that it looks like it had always been meant for it's new purpose. You are so creative.

  40. So glad to have found this link-up party through Sue at Sizzling Towards Sixty. I have been hanging with a younger blogger crowd and while it keeps me young at heart, we don't have a lot in common. I am afraid your beautiful blog and creative ideas might be dangerous to my budget but throwing caution to the wind!! Leslie @ onceuponatimehappilyeverafter.com
