I like projects and bargains. I am often inspired by Young House Love and have been on the hunt for a wooden high chair since reading their post on how they updated a wooden high chair with sunny, yellow paint. I finally found one - it was a bargain at $10. I turned it into a project by cleaning, sanding, then painting it.
A few weeks later I found a pair of toddler chairs also for $10. Another successful bargain and project!
Then I was given a pair of wooden stools that had been in storage at a family member's since their kitchen renovation in the '80s. As I had been wanting some counter stools for my kitchen I was happy to receive them. A couple coats of paint and they have now been given a new life.
