Stool Make over





Just wanted to quickly share my recently made over stool given to me by my father...really wished I had a before pic, as it had rustly legs and a badly worn seat. I had plans to have it in my WIR for those hard to reach items on the top shelf, but not sure if it should be tucked away for and only me to see. I am really pleased how it turned out...even the kids were impressed to see the old stool transformed!

Now off to do some more bedroom painting!

That is just so pretty Lisa. I would definitely put it where you can see it and not let anyone else use it.

Lovely stool. I would have loved to see a before picture too; I'll just have to use my imagination. I've been taking a break from blogging this summer, but not from quilting. I finally finished Ethan's quilt and entered it in my guild's show last week. I was really pleased with how it turned out. Love all your clothes posts. 8)

Happy stitching,
