I picked up a old wooden kitchen stool at an estate sale.
I assume that the stool is probably Strombecker brand.
The stool is missing some paint and one of it's legs.
I picked up a wooden dowel at a local hobby store and cut it to the proper length.
I removed one of the existing legs to get the exact length.
After some light sanding, the stool was ready to paint.
I had a container of paint that looked close to the same color.
Time for some glue.
After I applied a little of the paint, I knew from experience that this was not going to be quite the same color or sheen.
No, thats not a fried egg, its me adding a little bit of yellow paint to the mix. I also added some varnish to give the paint a little gloss like the original.
I had quite a bit of paint left over, so I looked through my box of projects and found this Strombecker sink that I have had for a while and gave it a fresh coat of paint with the remainder.
