Hello blogger friends!!
I am back from no wi-fi world!!!
Not being able to surf, blog, print off postage for the pile of stuff that recently sold, do listings, etc. etc. etc.- it is crazy how much stuff you do with technology and the internet these days!
I have a few new posts coming up and am thinking about a link party-
but for now thought I would share this darling little footstool
that recently got a makeover-
I found this petite beauty at a yard sale years ago.
It was being used as a step up for a travel trailer.
So there it sat- outside and it had tons of muddy grungy feet marks on it.
Not a pretty site for a little dainty antique footstool.
But it was a fantastic little size and so so darling!
Carved wood and little feet- loved it right away!
I asked if it was for sale, the guy hesitated and then said $5.00
I grabbed it and took it home with me and cleaned it up.
( I had a little help in the re-do today from Bella- this is one of her favorite stools to sit on)
After several years of different fabrics,
I decided it was time for a re-do and went with a
leopard print fabric and had a braided rope trim handy-
so used that for now- not sure it is staying.
It's a bit glam & fun!
I placed it underneath one of my favorite old chair frames.
It is a reddish wood that has been stripped so it has a bleached appearance.
We found it at a flea market and I have not even attempted upholstery on it.
Luckily, I had a silver platter that fit perfectly in the seat which is where
I set my favorite reads or
a basket of flowers.
I love the simple beauty it has.
& I love the elegant details and curves!
Now wearing faux fur & spots ~
the little footstool fits perfectly underneath!
Off to catch up with all of you and read your latest posts!
