I was pleased to find this little cutie recently...
My husband kindly picked it up for me (he does that alot, bless him....actually as an aside, he picked up four dining chairs for me a week ago and they are still in the back of his car, oops, lol)...anyway, hubby took this stool straight to the upholster for me, so I didn't actually see it till the makeover was complete. I asked hubby, when he came home after picking it up and dropping it off, what it was like (sometimes hard to tell from the pictures...I've learnt that the hard way more than once!) He said 'oh...it's ok'....in a way that really said 'that stool is awful and I have no idea why anyone in their right mind would look twice at it, let alone buy it'.
This is the guy that happily lets me indulge my creative visions, with the faith that I know what I am doing, and it will all come out good in the end. I really couldn't see how that sweet little stool could have been that bad....
And it wasn't.
Even Mr Upholsterer Man said that he thought it came up really well, and he is as far from a frilly sort of a shabby chic fan as you can imagine.
So it has a brand new oilcloth seat pad, new padding, and new rubber feet. I have scrubbed the frame clean but I am still deciding whether to give it a fresh coat of Rustoleum Universal Satin White...
should I or shouldn't I???
As for hubby, he hasn't seen the finished article yet, so who
cares knows what he thinks of it!?
