Breathe some life back into a sad-looking charity-shop find and create a stunning conversation piece for your home.
Today I am going to show you how to quickly and easily transform a tatty old foot stool into a quirky, unique object of beauty for the home. A foot stool makes a great little punch of detail in a room if you don’t feel confident yet to reupholster a whole chair or sofa. Kids love sitting on them too! So let’s get creating… I hope you enjoy it.
What you will need:
-A foot stool
-Staple gun plus staples
-Upholstery tack strip trim plus tacks (you can use just standard tacks, but strips save time)
This is my very first personal venture into the world of blogging so please be patient. I have been collecting magazine cuttings, postcards, wrapping paper, and all manner of visual stuff for many many years. It all goes into a box and slowly I create collaged pages in a growing number of scrapbooks. I do this purely for pleasure, however, often the pages of my scrapbooks become a go-to source of inspiration for all the creative projects that I embark on, be that decorating spaces, revamping furniture or making lampshades. I cannot get enough of all things visual. So with this in mind I thought I might start to share things that are exciting me visually. A close friend of mine was blown away when I showed her one of my books and she pretty much ordered me to share it with the world! So humbly, here are some of my scrapbook collaged pages together with other images that have caught my eye today.
