This little stool is one of those things I hesitated to bring home, but actually turned out to be a really fun project. It had been spray painted an icky copper color and the top was maple. I painted the base with AS Old White. I had intended to upholster the top, but nothing I tried seemed quite right. A trip to the potting shed turned up this old shipping crate lid from Hughes Brothers (I like those shipping numbers on the underside). Ben trimmed it to fit and put it all together. I added a little stenciling on the top side with some neat old brass stencils.
