BURLAP FOOT STOOL

Love, love, love burlap.  I found this foot stool at a yard sale for $1.00.  Yes, I said $1.00.  It had some hideous fabric on it so I ripped it off and recovered the top with batting.



Hubby reattached the top to the base. 

 I found my stash of burlap and covered the entire bench.  I used hubby's drill to drill the holes and added all the upholstery tacks.  I love using power tools.  I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I'm undecided if I want to stencil some letters on the top.  The stencils that I have are too big so I will have to buy new smaller ones.  For now I'm just going to leave it like it is. 


Leave me a comment so I know that you stopped by.
