Last week on my Thursday To do List, I had a couple of stools that I wanted to re-style.
Remember this one?
Now it looks like this...
My first thought was to go nautical...large blue and white stripe on the cushion and white painted body. However, finding blue and white stripe fabric this time of year in my little town, let's just say it was M. I. A. So...I ran across this cute fabric and went with it this way. Didn't I say, things never turn out the way I plan...my creativity somehow has a mind of it's own and goes in the complete opposite direction I was thinking. It all turned out good though. I really like this.
It's a little bit of a change from what we've been seeing around blogland. Not the usual whites.
Completed with storage under the cushion.
With a fun colorful fabric on top. The outline of the design is dark brown velvet which actually warms it up a little so it's not a full out Summer design. Although you can't really tell it in this picture..by the pool...in the sun...and 90 degree weather. Maybe I should have found a different place to take this photo. Oh well.
The other project was this little tiny stool
It's still a work in progress so you'll have to wait to see this one. I think I bit off more than I could chew last week...thinking I could do more than one project...hmmm.
And this one ,
Once I took off all the old fabric, I just couldn't bring myself to do anything to it. It's so old and looking like it's on it's last leg. I decided I would just use this for a prop for something.
So this old stool will be staying just like this for a while anyway.
Have a good day!
