A little Frenchie stool……


The other day I recovered this little antique stool in toile fabric to match the window treatments in the guest bedroom.

This is what it looked like when I first bought it……..
The finish was in good shape, however the fabric was pretty soiled.

I decided not to add the nail heads again after I recovered it with the new toile fabric.

The total cost for the project was free since I had the fabric and gimp left over from making the window treatments.
Now I just need to tackle the antique chair in there…..maybe another day?!?!

Hope to see you there!!!!!
