How sad does this little foot stool look? She was tattered and worn,
but with legs like these, she was a beauty in disguise.
I think I paid $2.99 for her at Saver's
Sorry for the quality of the picture, this was moments before painting.
I had already taken the top off and just set it back on for the pic.
Here is after two coats of paint. Again, I used my new favorite,
now discontinued Kilz Cashmere White from Walmart.
If there is any left in your WM grab it
while it is on clearance. It goes on so smooth and covers rather nicely.
I covered the top with a new layer of batting and a remnant of the same fabric I had used for a pillow for my slipcovered chair. It looks like I took this pic upside down. The poor little bird is standing on his head. Here it is with the chair I had just slipcovered. In hindsight, I would not have painted the legs on the stool if I had been thinking of these two together. I guess that is what happens when you don't plan ahead. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty cute, and they probably will sell seperately anyway. Thanks for visiting and thanks again for all of my new followers for coming back and seeing what is next from my never ending list of projects. Watch for my upcoming desk projects. I have recently picked up two new desks and can't wait to get to work on them. Linking to these parties:
