New House: Footstool Makeover....

I found this sweet little stool at a car boot sale in the Summer, it looked a bit (ok, a lot) sad and worn out but I had to take it home with me, especially as it was just £4.00!

This week I finally got round to giving it a little makeover and I am super pleased with the result! I painted the wooden legs with a fresh coat of Laura Ashley 'Linen' eggshell, resurfaced with some fresh upholstery foam and finished it off with a loose cover made from gorgeous Cath Kidston fabric. I kept the cover loose as i'm quite indecisive and like to change things around a lot!



I've been 'doing up' quite a bit of furniture ready for the new house recently, I find it's a super cheap way of making things fabulous and altering them to your own taste!

  3. What an improvement, it looks so much better.
    OK let's do a weather swap, just three days would be good, or even two, or one! No more though, I don't like it too hot and would start moaning after 3 days of heat.

  11. Wow, this is really pretty. Aren't you clever. I'd never have the confidence to do something like that. Shared you wallpaper post with my mum too - she is looking for something two tone and simple x

  14. I love your “new” footstool! Though, personally, I would’ve kept the white theme but the new cloth looks great too. Did you ever replace the foam when you were redecorating your footstool? And you repainted the legs too! How nice is that?!
