Vintage Folding Milk Stool
I found this vintage folding milk stool at a local antique shop; I feel fortunate to have found it. I had looked at one a few days earlier at a different antique shop, the piece was part of a silent auction and the current bid was already higher than I wanted to pay. But as Abraham Lincoln said “good things come to those who wait…”.
I can imagine this stool propped against a stall in the barn or hanging on a rusty nail on the rough barn wall. Each morning and evening the farmer reached for it, positioned it just right and commenced with his/her morning and evening chore of milking ol Buttercup. I painted this special piece with a pattern by Terrye French. This sweet pattern is reminiscent of days gone by so it was a perfect piece for this stool.
