Undertaking a little DIY over the summer break doesn’t need to be complicated. Here we’ve turned a plain wooden stool into an eye-catching outdoor essential with nothing but a lick of Resene paint

Create a mini table

Enjoy the sunshine while tackling a little light DIY with this simple project to convert a plain or secondhand stool into a crafty piece that doubles as a mini table. Now lie back with a cool drink and relax!

You will need:


  1. Mask off the seat and the ends of each leg (or use a design of your liking).

  2. Paint the top of the stool. Once dry, paint the leg ends and leave to dry. Repeat with another coat of paint.

  3. Remove masking tape.
