I'm glad I get bored and read different blogs because it gives me ideas like this. Beth had a construction spool that she generously let me have. Since it was pretty large, I decided to create a table instead of a stool. I was lacking that certain something on my front porch to go with my 2 lonely chairs. I found some awesome fabric at Wal*Mart that was only a $1 a yard. I only need 1.5 yards so this was perfect. I purchased some brown outdoor paint with a touch of sparkle for $4. I also got a bag of batting that was around $5. So the total cost of this project was only $12!
