Rustic Wooden Bathroom Stool

A thrifted, old stool gets a makeover and becomes a rustic wooden bathroom stool.

It’s almost the end of August, whoa, how did that happen? If I am looking back to my free two months [and I still have two weeks to go!] then I can say I got a lot done. House wise. I de-cluttered, organized, de-cluttered and re-organized and repeated that a couple times. I also did a lot of relaxing, but just to know, that I really got on top of things in the house actually relaxes me a lot already, haha.

One of the spaces I de-cluttered is our guest bathroom. It is tiny, and before I had a little cabinet tucked in a corner, filled with you know, bathroom stuff. Until I realized that more than half of the stuff in the cabinet had to go, because we were not using it anyways. It just filled up with random things.


I ended up throwing out the whole cabinet as I never really liked it anyways and whoa did that make a difference already.

For our monthly creative blog hop today, I will show you this little wooden stool that is now standing in the spotlight in our guest bathroom. Because today it’s all about bathrooms! Check out my friend Sam’s post below, ok??


This is the little stool I found along with 3 others for all together €15. Not a bad price tag!

I really liked the twine design on the seat and they all were in great shape overall. They got a good cleaning and were ready to be painted.

For my bathroom I wanted something different. I usually go with white tones, but for my rustic wooden bathroom stool I chose a dark grey chalk paint, like this one. I applied two coats in total.


This is how it looks after a little bit of sanding and waxing.

It’s new purpose is just to look pretty and fill the tiny spot in the guest bathroom.

Holding a faux plant to give the room a little bit of green, even if it’s fake. The planter is a little DIY you can read more about here.

You can’t really see the design on the seat now, but I’m sure that in the future I will be changing out decor and might put something else on top that lets the twine show as well.

I also hung a small basket beside it, which holds extra hand towels, some lipstick, sun lotion, you know that sort of stuff…

There’s not much a guest bathroom needs and I am so happy with how it looks in here now. It made such a big difference removing the cabinet and storing my cleaning products somewhere else.

    Love the new color Katrin. So perfect against the white tiles and the stool looks great in that corner with the basket.

    Now it’s perfectly clear, why you needed to paint this one black. White would have been too white really! Lovely idea, lovely to look at! Enjoy these last two weeks!

    Katrin I love the darker color choice it really makes that special stool stand out. Very cool, it almost looks oriental.

      Thank you Mary. I also love the darker grey, something I usually don’t go for, but I am really loving it here.
