Hello my lovely friends! I had a great morning visiting a few estate sales with my mom. I didn’t buy a lot but I did bring home a few special pieces for my booth. I’ll be sure to show you soon. 🙂
Today’s makeover is this padded stool that I featured in last week’s Treasure Hunting post (I called it a small bench… pretty much the same thing right?).
It’s a Goodwill find with a removable seat.
The first thing I did was remove the pleather and throw it away.
I chose a beautiful feed sack fabric from Farmhouse Wares for the seat. Unfortunately, the wood was too thick for the lightweight upholstery gun that I’ve been using for years and I might have killed it (oops). I’ve been looking for an excuse to buy the heavy duty one anyway, and it worked like a charm! (Both staple guns are from Hobby Lobby.)
Tada! So much prettier now.
The fabric is totally gorgeous for this piece. <3
It has a vintage farmhouse feel, don’t you think?
Here’s the inside – there weren’t any problems so I kept it the same.
Here’s a handy before/after comparison:
What do you think of my farmhouse stool makeover? I’d love to know.
Have a lovely day, my friends!
