DIY Fool

I just finished Abby Sue's stool for her room.  I know, 3 projects in 3 days.  But my hubby is working all weekend and it is snowing, so what better time than now?  Here we go

Bought this stool for $3.99 at Goodwill

Abby Sue needed a stool for under her makeup table.  She has a white plastic thing that she doesn't use because it hurts her butt.  Anyways, I liked this because it opened up and could hide some of her treasures (plus it was cheap).  I also got some stool padding for $1.99.

My sister gave us some cute purple polka dot material to cover it with, another bonus

So, I got out the Gorillia glue and glued the padding down and then stapled the material over top.

Then I painted the main part of the stool white

Does anyone else think this is kind of boring??  Both Abbs and I did, so, off to Fabricland, where my mini me picked out some purple, yes purple, leopard print material.  I was so proud of her.  This is way better

We even had some left over to do the inside.  (Don't those 2 prints above just make your mouth water?)

I have to give a shout out to one of my most very favorite Christmas presents, the retractable, magnetic screw driver!! In pink, no less.  So great for little screws because they never fall out. 

Back to the stool.  Isn't that purple a great colour?  It is Abby Sue's new favorite colour and she wants her room purple in our new house.  A purple jungle.  I get excited just thinking about it.  Here is the finished project

Diego just has to get in the pictures!!

Don't know why she made the face.  Notice her shirt.  My wild child!!!  Clashes with her stool.  Maybe that is the reason for the face.

Looks great in her colourful room.  I need to redo the makeup table, though.  The verathane I used turned the drawers yellow.  That really grated my cheese when it happened.  Oh well, another fun project for me.  Maybe I will paint the vanity bright white and somehow incorporate purple in it as well.  Another exciting project at the Shropshire house!  

Have a great weekend.
