What do you do when you have an ugly non-vintage camp stool in your vintage loving life?
Find a clean spot on my really-used-as-a-drop-cloth drop cloth, scrounge around for some painter's tape and buy a bottle of craft paint (because, out of the 100 bottles of craft paint I own, I never seem to have the correct shade that I am visualizing in my head).
I yanked off that nasty green covering and staple gunned my faux grain sack covering on it and I do not hate it anymore.
This whole project took about 15 minutes and the hardest part was putting the tape down evenly. Did you ever notice that when tape comes off the role it tends to be curved ever so slightly? Just enough to make a perfectionist cringe.
If you wanted the paint to be more permanent, you could add a textile additive to the paint. I'm all about looks here though (as you can tell from my latest haircut, lol), so I didn't bother.
Great job, Pam! Hey, I'm going to use you as my go-to person for advice when I finally open up a face-book. (PS I'm so not ready yet).

This is cute. I love old camp stools, at least that 's what I call them! I redid a vintage one a few months ago and I just love it. Cost me fifty cents at a flea market! Yours has that nice nautical flair too:)

Just spotted this on your sidebar, Pam...what a great project! I have a set of old camp stools that are begging to be re-done...thanks for the inspiration!
