Summer easy 1 - 2 - 3

One:
Take a dilapidated stool top that has long ago lost its legs...
scrub it down, sand the rough edges, add a little wax for shine...












Two:
Find 4 old casters...with great rusty patina...wash them up...add a little oil so the wheels roll...











Two & one-half:
Gather up 16 screws (4 screws for each caster)...granted they don't all need to match since they are on the bottom side of the stool top (holding the casters in place) and no one will see them...
Its actually short of a miracle that I could find 16 matching screws in the basement...but that's the joy of buying a house from someone who did the remodeling and left all his remaining materials in the basement...over 10 years later, I have yet to buy any screws...














Three:








Put it all together...and you have a charming pedestal to display/organize/highlight whatever you desire...
dessert on a buffet table, supplies in your office, discoveries from a nature walk...












or just a few daisies from the garden...
