How-To: Mushroom Stool

Transform a simple stool into an adorable mushroom with this easy project.

How-To: Mushroom Stool

We use these stools in our kitchen all the time, but they have gotten pretty beat up over the years. They are splattered with paint and are quite an eyesore. When my sister was recently visiting, she told me I could paint it to look like the little mushroom collection I have in my kitchen, and I loved the idea. This is a really easy project that can transform any simple stool into a totally cute mushroom.
