Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Our's was busy, busy, busy but I'll tell you all about it tomorrow.
Today I'd like to share a footstool makeover I completed last week for the sun porch.
It was a quick and easy makeover - - my favorite type of project.
It turned out super cute I think, the perfect thing to add the Sun Porch to give is a cozier, relaxing look.
Even has a secret spot for me to hid my treasures!
When I brought it home from the thrift store it was looking a little frumpy.
I picked a vintage sheet from my collection with some pretty embroidery on it to cover the top of the stool.
First I cut off the pretty lace to use on another project, and then I cut a piece long enough to fit the stool, making sure to center the design in the middle.
I then had a long, skinny piece of fabric. To make the fabric wide enough for the project I cut to more panels of fabric from the sheet and pinned them to the first embroidered piece I cut.
After sewing on the two panels, I pressed the seams nice and flat . . .
And then using a basting stitch, I sewed a straight line down each seam to give it a finished look.
After stapling the whole thing onto the stool itself it now looks like this after I gave the stool base a coat of white spray paint.
Now I'll be lounging on the porch watching the weeds grow faster than my flowers - - just kidding.
Shelby Girl has her favorite spot on the porch picked out also! She love it.
