I had all intentions of covering this stool and selling it in my booth, but when I finished, I thought nope, it is staying right here!
Oh, look I got artsy, I tipped the camera and blurred the edges
It was just your standard $5.00 thrift store stool.
The first thing I did was went to my newly organized linen closet
If you had any thoughts of organizing your linen closet, don't put it off, do it now! It is so fun to see all of the fabrics you have to choose from.
I decided to slip cover this one instead of upholster it because I was to lazy to paint the legs. Just lay your fabric right side down over the stool and then pin it up the side and put a pin right at the top where you want the seam to end.
I pin it loosely and then sew the seam on the inside of the pins closest to the stool, this will get you a nice tight fit. Then just sew the trim and skirt on.
I used a Mary Rose fabric for the top, vintage trim, and a vintage damask table cloth on the bottom. It is hard to see, but the damask was a really light pink.
When I finished, I brought it in and sat it next to my covered white chair and thought....This baby is not going anywhere!
I love that it is a slip cover, I can take it off and throw it in the wash.....Cat hair!
Now, I have a deal with myself, if I bring something in I have to take something out. So, I am going to sell the stool that was originally in that spot.
So, which category do you fall into?
OCD - obsessively and compulsively need order and Hate clutter
Hoarder - You hate to get rid of anything you make
