What I like about the holidays is the fact that you, after having visited all your relatives and such, mostly have no actual things you have to do, but a lot of time for yourself (hopefully). I actually worked throughout Christmas (but did get to spend the Eve with my family) and started my holidays as late as today. But one evening when I couldn't get any sleep I still did one of those things I've been planning forever, one of those thing you do at those days when you have nothing more important to dig in to first (love those moments); I revamped my ugly old kitchen stool.
Here's before: rusty, old and dirty (it's actually "inherited" from my parents, I guess they bought it in the early 80s...). Also note my pink brush :)
I painted it in a shining white colour and put some of the tapestry from the wall in the old flat on the steps, after which I put a layer of the white paint on the tapestry too. I finished by painting a mix of glue and water on it to make it washable and water resistant.
Turned out quite well -and it always feels good to be able to revamp something old instead of throwng it away and getting something new!
