My first foray into furniture

This stay at home mom thing is really giving me a chance to expand my crafting and creative horizons. This weeks adventure: upholstery.

I've had this red footstool for years and it has been through a lot: melted candle wax, muddy feet, more than one meal of spilled salsa or chili or something. It wax looking pretty thrashed and I've been wanting to recover it for ages.

So this week I pulled the base off, levered off the fastenings, measured, found new fabric at JoAnn's (Where there was a sale on home decor fabric! Woot!), washed, ironed, measured, folded, fastened the new fabric and reattached the legs. Success! I really like this furniture crafting. I may have to do more.
