Before I tell you about my little parlor stool...
...I want to thank you for all of your kind words on the last post about my Dress Form business adventure. I was truly overwhelmed with all of the kind comments. I am so honored to be a part of the sisterhood we have in the blogging world that supports, celebrates, and encourages....Thank you.
Now, my little parlor stool
What I started with was a little blue thrift store stool yelling..."Make me pretty!"
Only I didn't start out to make over a stool... I started out to make a pillow
First I did a white stencil on tan fabric
Then added the corner of a vintage runner (The rest of it had holes), two different vintage laces, and a button. What a cute pillow this was going to make....But wait a minute....I looked over at the blue stool, put the pillow cover on it and....Oh my gosh, it fit perfect!
Yep, it was meant to be!
I painted the base heirloom white
And I had myself a little parlor stool, I priced it at $38 and put it in my booth at Orange Tree Antiques
Even I thought maybe it was a little to girlie.
I know it would sell right away without the lace, but gosh....... .....Sometimes a girl just gets bored.
