Hi, everyone! I hope you’re doing great!
I want to share something with you I was asked to do some time ago. A lady in my town had a little old stool that was her dog’s favorite bed. She told me that she had transformed her living room and that stool didn’t fit it there as she was now using soft tones like whites and creams. She asked me to transform it into something that was worth looking at it, and she said that I could do what I wanted. I love when people let me be creative without telling me what to do. Does it sound as if I am anarchic? Yes, I confess I am.
Sorry for the pictures, but if you are following me for a while you would know then I’m a busy mum of three and I do my projects when I can, what it means at night most of the time. But now I’m a blogger too, so I promise I will take into account good quality pictures, pinky promise!
The bottom fabric was torn and the foam in bad shape, which meant I had to replace them.
I remember the first time I had to remove the staples out of a chair; I thought it would be fast, just a few staples couldn’t take too long. But facing reality, there are not just a FEW.
I had some spare foam at home and cut it to size. Then searched for some fabric that could fit in well with my idea, and I found this tote bag. It seems impossible it could fit, but it did! I also spray painted the stool bones white.
I unsew the bag, washed it, ironed it, cut the fabric and stapled it in place. Then I took some painter’s tape to make the stripes, which I painted blue-grayish with my homemade chalk paint. The last detail was a piece of trimming to hide the staples, glued it with my hot glue gun.
I have to say that she loved it and her dog too!
