I received a Facebook message with this photo from my junkin' friend, Jodi. It said that she had dropped a little stool on her garage floor and broke it. She said she would give me the stool, and I could figure out something to do with it. Of course I didn't turn it down.
So with a diagonal split on the table top and two legs off, I came up with a fix.
It included some mending braces from Menards. (Getting the stickers off was more work than fixing the stool, even with Goo Gone.)
Here is the fix. The legs were re-attached with screws right through the table top, and the mending braces re-connected the table top. I purposely left a small gap in the table top, and put the mending braces on the top so it would look like an amateurish fix.
Next I painted the table with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
Of course the stool was distressed with sandpaper, and waxed.
My little mended stool makes a great little plant stand! Made with a free stool, one 67 cent and two 57 cent mending braces, and a little paint and wax.
