Flower Power DIY

I love it when I pull up to a “nothing-looks-good tiny little garage sale“ and I find that one item to bring home.  Large or small, it’s just fun.  This time I found a step stool, I think originally from IKEA, around the $20.00 price.  I paid $2.00.  I knew it was a good item to find because I had just told the hubby I needed one.  You know what happens as you get older?  You get shorter!

I sanded it, primed it, then spray painted it white, but it still needed something.  Then I gave it some flower power!


I’m no stranger to adding duct tape to wood.  I’ve been a true fan of the decorative tape since I used it on my white dresser in the woman cave.  It’s a simple as laying on strips of the tape down, overlapping slightly.  I decided since flowers in the  gardens aren’t matched up perfectly, the duct tape shouldn’t be perfectly aligned either.
