We have an Ipad and a Galaxy Tablet. Neither one of them have a "home" or a place where they can safely sit and charge. They hang out on nightstands, coffee tables, end tables, etc. Well, at last week's facebook auction, I bid and won a cute little footstool with 2 drawers. I figured I could drill a hole in the back of each drawer and put a tablet in each. Safe haven for our expensive toys.
The stool itself was quite ugly - brown wood and an old heavy tweed material on the top.
But I knew that I wanted it. $10 later, and I had won it!!!
I had also bid a whopping 75 cents and won this fabulous material.
The only thing left to do was paint the stool and recover the top. There were 4 screws holding the top down and it took about 2 hours to paint. I used the red "oops" paint that I bought last week.
What a quick and easy (not to mention cute) project.
I still have to drill the holes in the back of the each drawer, but my drill need charging and I was too excited to wait to share.
Total cost of this project
Stool - $10
Material - $.75
Paint - 0
$10.75. Not too shabby. I love it. I'll post a pick once I am totally finished and it is sitting in a place of honour in my living room.
Not a bad afternoon's work, eh?
