I got a thing for stools. I recycled an old brown stool into this cute table in my exercise room.  I gave it a fresh coat of light blue paint, put on an old glass topper, and voilà.  The only thing I purchased was the candle at Fred Meyer.IMG_0224[1]I also got these chairs free, complete with slip covers, from my sister who just wanted them gone after her garage sale.IMG_0225[1]Here’s how it looks in the weight room.
