Sixties Footstool Makeover

13 April
Yet another cute little stool project out of my garage! I'm making great progress getting my garage cleaned out so I can buy more projects... it is yard sale season after all!

Sixties Footstool Makeover

Here is what it looked like before.

My daughter's exact words when she saw it were "I hate it!" :o) I have to admit, it was rather ugly but I could still see potential!

I used Yellow Tree chalk paint in the color called "Home". Find them on Facebook at YellowTreeOK.

And the fabric I used was left over from another project.

It would make a cute little footstool (as originally intended)...

But I think it's sweet next to the bath tub to hold soap and perhaps your towel!
