Before.....


I got this Vintage Stylaire Step Stool on the side of the road a while back. It's been sitting on my back porch. I started stripping the paint when I first got it then never got back to it. So, here I go again. The seat, back and some trim was painted red. I've removed some of that and it's yellow. I am sure yellow is the original color so I plan to repaint it yellow. Some no brain person painted the chrome and the top of the two steps gray. It comes off the chrome well with a razor and steel wool. And it's in great shape.
Here also is a picture found online of what it probably looked like originally. Someone on Etsy is selling this for $85. I'll keep mine!
