A Step Stool Makeover - Can you tell I love to shop?

I had this step stool and wanted to try to do something very different with it!

I love to shop - there I said it - It's an addiction and I probably need an intervention, but we will save that for another day.

I also love to shop in stores that have pretty bags - weird, huh?

So, as a result, I had a collection of bags and decided to cut them apart and collage them onto the stool:

This was not an easy task because I have to wrap the scraps around the sides and legs - but I was determined!

After I finished decoupaging the scraps, I painted a few coats of varnish on the stool. 

It is certainly a "one of a kind" and a fun conversation piece!

Now that I have cut apart all of my shopping bags, it's time to go shopping again!

This is for sale at the Shabby Chic Boutique - visit her site to see what's new in the shop this week!

  1. I absolutely love this stool, it is the cutest, chicest, cleverest thing...I also collect these types of stools and I thought I was creative, I usually sprayed them white or black and then put cork shelf liner on the top and use them for the cat to get up on the couch and not use her claws...compared to your stool, mine just pales...I know what I am going to do when I find a new step stool...come on over fore a visit and see my jungle, I think you will love it...Phyllis

  2. What a really great idea! I love to shop too - much to the chagrin of my husband. LOL! I think women are just born to shop; it's in our dna. =)


  3. Cute idea, Patti! I haven't decoupaged anything in many years, but I always found it a fun project. This is darling. You are going to make some shopper very happy when they discover this one!

  4. I love shopping bags too but haven't known what to do with them. I love your idea!
