I have had this little footstool sitting out in one of the storage sheds for a very long time, I have no idea where it came from. Poor little thing was so unattractive, with ugly, dirty upholstery and badly in need of repair and refinishing. I have a thing about footstools and have quite a few scattered in different rooms throughout the house. So, I held onto it thinking that one day with some work and a little effort it could be nice.
Well, last week that day arrived. I took it into the garage, stripped off the old fabric, sanded down and refinished the wooden base and added a top coat of polyurethane.
I came across this brocade fabric for the cushion - perfect!
Now my little footstool is residing in the living room, a far cry from the old shed.
I am regarding it as a kind of pre-Christmas gift to myself.
I think it is so cute!
The word for footstool in french is, tabouret, so much prettier sounding, so now I have added a new word to my french vocabulary.
Today I finished all of my Christmas decorating. I hope to be sharing it with you over the next couple of weeks. It's nice to have it done early enough to enjoy all of the work and effort. Now I can concentrate on all of the other wonderful events of the holiday season.
Thank you for visiting
