slipcovered stool…

I found this footstool at a garage sale and it was missing a top cushion.  first, I should say, I don’t sew, but, this was 5 rectangles sewn with straight lines.

I recycled the material from an old shabby chic shower curtain.  it had 3 rows of cute ruffles on it.

I painted the cherry legs white, and added some lace and dried flowers to the top.

  5. What a sweet little slipcover--great job! I've used thrifted Simply Shabby Chic sheets for several projects and you can't beat the economy of them. The ruffle detail is perfect and the dried roses look so lovely on top.

  26. I hadn't seen a post from you for awhile and just realized that somehow I missed your last two in my reader. How smart you are to think of using a shower curtain to recover a footstool! The ruffles look so very pretty on it!
