My new laundry room foot stool decorated with vinyl (Cindy Loo)

Look at this cute stool I found at a garage sale yesterday for $1!  OK, it wasn't so cute when I bought it, but I brought it home, sanded it, painted it black, distressed it a bit, put a clear coat on it, then decorated it with vinyl...now its cute!  I have a duet washer and dryer and they are on those pedestal drawers.  Being only 5'2'' (and that's a stretch) I can never reach the cupboards above them, so I've been looking for a footstool to keep in the laundry room.  I used Cindy Loo for the elements and the vinyl is Certainly celery (from Stampin Up) and Orchid from a bulk buy I did (both are oracal brand vinyl).

WOW!! That's really cute! And would have cost about $50 in any catalog! LOVE Garage-sale-shopping!

This is so cute! A really great GIFT idea too. I know a few kids that this would be wonderful for. Thanks for sharing! ;o)

It came out great! For those of us that are a little challenged when it comes to refinishing, can you walk us through your steps in creating your finished stool, including what products you used? TFS!!!

I am new to your blog and I LOVE all your wonderful ideas! I am relatively new to Cricut and SCAL but learning to do more. I love how beautiful this "find" turned out. Very lovely.
