Trash to Treasure footstool



Last week, I saw this poor little stool on the side of the road, and instantly thought, "Oh Boy! I can do something with that!!!"

Well, I picked it up and then drove around for a week with it in the back of my car. Seriously, once things get in my car, they rarely make it out. It's like a black hole or the Bermuda Triangle.

So, I added a coat of Betsy Ross House Brown that was left over from the vanity remodel, some batting from an old pillow, and leftover fabric from our bathroom curtains.

Another free project :)

  6. Love it! I'm the same way about furniture in my car. I got a chair at Goodwill a few days ago for a project from Pinterest and it's still in there...someday. :)
