Here is the before version of the bar stool leftover from a set that I had at one time. Just plain and boring.
Here is the updated version using just some paint and an uppercase living snowflake on the top. I took a scrap piece of wood and painted it to match the top of the bar stool and used another uppercase living expression that says welcome. A little bit of gorilla glue and a couple of snowflake ornaments and this is what you get.
Simple but very cute. I was thinking of adding some Christmas greenery but decided against it. This way it can be used all Winter instead of just Christmas time. I live in Western Pennsylvania so unfortunately the winters are long.
Hopefully I inspired you to take something old and remake it to something new and useful.
