- Refurbished: A wooden stool gets a New Mexico makeover


I've mentioned our favorite antique store, By the Bridge in Wimberley many times ... with good reason. Jill Jones has an ever-changing array of funky stuff priced to sell.

Case in point is this stool I got for $15 ... it wasn't much to look at, but it fit perfectly under the vanity in the master bath that we use as a painting station because it gets such great light.


Upon our return, Don decided to sand it down, restain the legs, and milk paint the top in some of the colors that washed through the five days we spent in Santa Fe.

He also burned Zia sun symbols into the edges ... perfect reminders of the sunrise to sunset good times we had at the Ravens Ridge B&B (thanks to our daughters, who came up with the best birthday present ever).

Yes, the movement. Don did such a great job with the Zia lines, they dance in the wind...
