A Quick and Easy Footstool Update

Don't you just love a quick and easy project?  My garage is loaded with all kinds of projects that need my attention, but lately I've been concentrating on the ones that can be flipped in an hour or less. I'll save the big projects for a rainy day.....if we ever get one.

vintage footstool update
It doesn't get much easier than this. It took me about an hour to update the tired old footstool I recently purchased at a vintage street faire

flea market find footstool update
This is what I started with. The fabric was a smelly mess and the metal legs were attached with hot glue. A little chalk paint took care of the dated looking legs.

vintage footstool gets an update
Look what I found after I pried off the legs and the dirty paisley fabric. Gag!!!  My parents had pillows covered in this fuzzy harvest gold/avocado green fabric back in the late 60s, but at least we never had to put up with plastic slip covers.

grain sack covered footstool flea market find
Grain sack remnant to the rescue. I didn't even bother removing the plastic wrap.

Am I crazy for not wanting any dirty shoes on it?  Right now it's living in the master bathroom with a few more linens and my clean baby shoes:-)
