Upholstered Footstool Revamp

Ta-da! Its finally finished, after a week. I knew exactly what fabric I wanted when I saw it in the fabric store at the beginning of last week. Then there was the paint choice, black or white?

But its finished and happily sitting in the corner of my dining room!

Old footstool Before

Sanding...

Reupholstering                                                                                      During…

To give my $3 foot stool a little something extra, I lined the inside with black velvet. Adhered the velvet with spray on adhesive and trimmed the top.

Velvet and new hardware  

New footstoolAfter!

I’m so happy its finished! Now, I can start the china cabinet re-do. That will probably take a little longer than a week, so I’m off to Home Depot to invest in a good great sander. Because sanding by hand is not an option. Oh, and did I mention picking out new hardware is very tuff! There are so many different kinds to choose from.

Have a great week!

It went from Rosanne to awesome! Did you do that in one day? Or did it take 2?

Pve...if I only had a magic wand! But I believe you have one, do you mind passing it over?! :)

Heidi thank you for commenting, it took me about a week. You know waiting for paint to dry and all.
