Granny foot stools – Outdated / UPdated

P1180263Granny’s old needlepoint topped foot stool.

P1180261I thought about saving and selling the needlepoint after I removed it.  But the ‘donation pile’ was screaming for more; and the donation pile won!

P1180262Although the wood frame is pretty banged up, it’s still plenty sturdy.

P1180264And I really like the flower carvings on the sides.

P1180265ALWAYS 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!

P1180266This one was too!

P1180267This square one has tapestry fabric (monkeys?!?!?)

P1180270Similarly styled base, sans the pretty carvings; but in better condition.

P1200842

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!

P1200840I 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.

P1200844The 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.
