This cute little needle point footstool was given to me a few years ago when a friend noticed that it matched my dining room furniture. I am not really sure that a dining room needs a footstool but I thought it would look cute.
I started with removing the top and cleaning up the base. There were a thousand staples and brads holding two layers of material. Even thought this pretty little needle point does not match the color palette I am using in the dining room I love it so I am going to wash it up and display in my project room.
Under the needle point I found this farm scene on what I think was bark cloth. This layer was attached with a ton of tacks.
And here is the little footstool with a completely new top made of new stuffing and the floral material that I used on the curtains for this room. If you haven’t seen my new curtains you can check them out here. You can also see some of the other elements of the room here and there.
It was such a beautiful day I decided to take the “after” picture outside. I love it when I see other bloggers “posing” their furniture outside but I don’t think I pulled it off, it just looks plain silly to me.
There are only a few projects left before the final reveal of the dining room. I am so ready to move onto an other room.Thanks for reading,
I will be linking up to these wonderful parties:
