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!
