The Stool

It's been a busy few weeks with the Easter holidays, lots of selling at Vintage fairs and children to entertain.  I did manage a quick visit to the boot sale yesterday morning but don't have the time to show you my wares today.  My mother flies home today and we are going to squeeze in one last trip out this morning before she goes. 

I thought you might like to see a previous charity shop purchase I have "reloved".


BEFORE
Sad, unloved stool




After

Inspiration came from one of the pieces of gorgeous material my lovely friend Helen from icklebabe.com sent to me.  A lick of paint and a recover of the seat with Helen's material and a new stool is born !








Stool will be available to purchase in my etsy shop soon.

  1. That is so so gorgeous. I was going to say it's a move away from your usual style in your house, but then I see it's for sale!

    I just love your taste, everything you do is stunning. x

  6. Brilliant, the colour match between the paint and the fabric is perfect. Love that delicate pistachio shade. I must remember to check out your shop more often!

    1. Thank you lovely. The paint colour is called Absinthe but I agree I think it is more a true pistachio colour.

      The Etsy shp is looking a little bare at the moment. I have been selling at vintage fairs so haven't listed much xx
