The French Foot Stool

Hi, all!

Today I am going to show you the easiest and fastest transformation of a little foot stool I bought at my favorite flea market.

It was “brand new” let’s say because the foam was perfect and it had a plastic wrap to protect.  Even the legs were white so no need to paint them! Sorry for the bad quality of the picture but I was so excited I started the project at night.

I searched for some nice french inspired images and found a lovely one that fit perfectly.

Then I did the same as in my romantic pillow to transfer the graphic into the fabric. You will find step by step instructions here. I stapled it in place and it was done!

Isn’t it cute? What’s your favorite way to transfer images?

    Transferring is something I haven’t tried. I see so many lovely projects like this, but I’ve yet to attempt one. Pinned and Tweeted.

      Mimi, I try to repurpose everything it’s not useful anymore… Sometimes the idea strikes me all of a sudden, and sometimes it takes months… Anyway, I’m happy you’re visiting 🙂
