Vintage Metal Stool as a Side Table

I’ve been looking for  a cute stool  to use as  a side table next to my swing. I love to sit there, drink my iced tea and read my magazines while the kids terrorize the yard. I’ve been searching for a while and I fell into some luck when a vendor I am going to be wholesaling for was willing to trade a vintage metal stool as a side table for some of my goods.

I have a rosa rugosa rose bush in my yard. I thought they looked so pretty in a vintage white pitcher on the metal stool. It has such great wire turned legs. I love how things are really starting to bloom in our yard!

 Even though they have some wicked thorns they smell heavenly. Every year I wait to gather the rose hips and those pesky squirrels always beat me to it!

 I love the weathered patina on the metal. It has such a great look to it. I love all of the details and how well it is made!

I love that this is the perfect , little vintage metal stool to set my lemonade on in the summer when I am reading while swinging on my found swing. With the smell of the roses, it makes it the perfect way to spend an afternoon when the kids are outside playing.

It supposed to be almost 100 degrees here today. Nothing like going from 30 to 100 in  months time, That’s Chicago for you. I bought the new Sew Somerset and hopefully I am going to get to read it today, sit back, put my iced tea on my stool while the kids splash in the kiddie pool.
Stay cool!

  4. hi Jen-

    I have that exact stool, but it isn’t painted – still the bare metal, but the seat is white. It was from my MIL’s stash of furniture. I liked the stool so much that hubs and I decided to keep it. Like you said -It is the perfect stool.
    My best- Diane
