Take a Seat

Who knew Labor Day was the BEST day for thrift store shopping??  My local Savers was having an everything in the store 1/2 off sale so I came early and left with a ton of fun new projects.  Like this cute little seat- cost $3.
 Removed the grody piece of vinyl on top.  Sat the seat cushion on top of my favorite fabric and cut around it, leaving enough extra fabric to fold over. 
Stapled fabric after folding over, creating a neat edge. 
Finally, I painted the legs with a glossy black spray paint and replaced the seat cushion.  Voila!
What fabulous Labor Day treasures did you stumble upon?

Update: Linking to Kimba's DIY Day at A Soft Place to Land.  Head on over for more DIY projects!
