It has been way too long since I have posted any of my recent projects.  I have to admit, I have been lazy when it comes to blogging, but I am back on track and have a cute little project to share today.

I have loved this material since I first saw it, but it was $28 a metre and I way too frigging cheap for that.  But when I went to Fabricland yesterday, it was on clearance for $6 per metre and I knew it would be perfect for my new stools.

I know that it is extremely busy, but I it so bright and just plain fun.  Give it a chance and I will make you change your mind about it.  I promise

I bought 2 of these these footstools from my friend. I loved how retro looking they were and they have storage inside, which is a huge plus as well.

They were pretty beat up and desperately needed some TLC - which I was MORE than happy to provide, in the form of my busy bird material.  I absolutely love the silver legs underneath, and they fold down if you want a lower stool.

First I ripped the old red material off.  Not sure how old these are, but the cushion underneath literally crumbled under my hands!

Next, I got out my stapler and glue gun and went to work!

I love how it turned out and I love how it is making my "reading corner" in my rec room come together.

Next up, add a pallet picture frame and fix that godawful lamp.  Stay tuned! Pin It


  1. so nice to hear your back Vicky. I love the stool it looks great, my grand-daughter would love that fabric for her bedroom, its her style. Can it be ordered online?

    1. Hi Millie. I love it too. It is so bright and fun! I bought it at our local fabric store. I don't know if you could buy it online. I am always afraid to buy online. It always costs so much more to ship here to Canada
