Stool turned table

I found 2 metal vintage stools at a garage sale for only a few bucks, one had a back and one didn’t.
  I unfortunately don’t have a place to use stools, so I knew I needed to repurpose them somehow.
I removed the black vinyl pads and the back support, then painted the stools an aqua color. To protect the paint and age them a little more I used a dark brown wax.

I made the table top from a piece of stock pine and distressed it to look like weathered barn wood, in my next post I’ll show the process I used.

The metal around the diameter of top is actually galvanized pipe strap, this can be found at any hardware store, then I used upholstery tacks to attach and fill in the holes on the strapping.
The stools already had holes in the top from the attached pads so I didn’t need to drill any holes to attach the tops to the stools.

It was an easy project, now I have the perfect sized side tables.
