Trash to Treasure



 My mom was cleaning out one of her closets and found this little stool. She forgot she even had it and was going to throw it out. Well I couldn't have that, so I saved it and gave it new life!






 So what do you think? I know it seems like all my posts lately  have been about something in my living room. I promise this is it (for now that is ;)!!
                           Have a great week!

Penny I bought the fabric at Hobby Lobby. It must be new because this is the first time I saw it there.

Martina it turned out wonderfully. Did you stencil the stool, or is it the fabric design?

Your stool is simply darling! I love it. Martina, did you give your stool a coat of black then the white? I notice you can see black where it has been distressed and I have wondered how that is done.
Hugs, Cindy

Martina, that is a winner of a transformation! Love the fabric, it's just awesome! Isn't it satisfying to turn something into something extraordinary? Great job!

Miriam@BeBookBound said...

So cute! I have some similar fabric, and now I have to decide what to put it on since I don't have a cute little stool...

Terry said...

I used that same fabric on two lyre back chairs that I have in my booth. I love it. Maybe I should use it on something for me like you did. Great look.

Laura said...

Martina- it looks wonderful!
Isn't transforming things fun?

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
