$3 foot stool redo!!

Happy Tuesday friends!!....

I have been looking for a foot stool for as long as I can remember.  Well, I finally found one at a tag sale in the spring.  It was only $3 and in need of some serious LOVE....I just got around to working on it and I was not at all disappointed....It is just perfect....take a look....

so not sooo pretty...right...

in need of some serious LOVE....

EEK!!

3 layers of fabric on that musty smelling cushion....

I added new batting and my new fabric choice is.....DROPCLOTH!

fresh and clean

you know the drill:
spray painted it white (of course) and then used some antiquing glaze....

  5. Hi Mariaelena, your stool is great.

    I'm following you back but my icon isn't showing up. Some of mine are missing also. Think Blogger is having some issues.

    Thanks for following Bella Vista. Come back often.
