Granny’s old needlepoint topped foot stool.
I thought about saving and selling the needlepoint after I removed it. But the ‘donation pile’ was screaming for more; and the donation pile won!
Although the wood frame is pretty banged up, it’s still plenty sturdy.
And I really like the flower carvings on the sides.
ALWAYS REMEMBER! When considering purchasing something like this to ‘re-do’ to TURN IT OVER, and be sure the existing top is easily removable. This one was! Just two screws and DONE!
This one was too!
This square one has tapestry fabric (monkeys?!?!?)
Similarly styled base, sans the pretty carvings; but in better condition.
I added some extra ‘fluff’ (a small pillow form) to the square one and selected some vintage calico-like fabric to cover it with. Perfect for propping up your tired footsies at the end of a long hard day!
I HAD to repaint the base to this one; it was so badly damaged. Opted for white since the other one was brown. A pretty aqua, tan and white paisley fabric suited the vintage feel of this one.
The bigger one on the bottom here was pretty much ‘just a set of legs’ (but they were easily removable!) I don’t even remember what the original stool looked like; just the it was VERY grungy. It had several layers of old fabric and batting that were just GROSS! And the wood was stained too, so I took off the legs and tossed the rest. Had Michael cut a new wood base for me and covered it from scratch. All you need is a good staple gun!
All three stools have gone to my booth at Stars.
