I bought this adorable little foot stool a while ago. I loved it. It even has some storage, I guess to keep your sewing supplies?
It was painted inside but I painted again in ASCP Duck Egg Blue. I guess the previous owner had stripped the color because it had some smudges of paint but I liked it like that, so I left it. (I just noticed Enzo in the background, LOL)
It was quite a pain to upholster it, I had to unscrew the lid and then after it was upholstered I had to screw it back. I had to find new screws and some of the old ones were too old.
Here I am all happy with stupidity... Seriously, this is not a happy story!!!!
The compressor hose BROKE and scared the hell out of me!!! My husband said: SIT DOWN. You are DONE. And handed me a bag of candy... It was that bad!!!!
Anyway, another day I finished what I had started this day, which were the corners. The stool does not have sharp corners. I am not sure if that made it harder or not, but in my first upholstery workshop I only worked with a chair seat, which had sharp corners.
See what I mean? The bating kind of "bundled" there and now the stool WON'T CLOSE!!!
It actually matches this chair... I put it there so you have an idea of the size. It can be used as a foot stool. Or you can have it in a corner, like I did when Maria come over. I put in a corner of her room with her towels on top. It is great to pack a luggage, since you can sit on it and you are lower to the ground.
But now I have to undo the corners, cut some of the bating and do it again.
I also thought about putting something from the Graphics Fairy on top, but one of my friends fell in love with it and she said she wanted it plain. I hope she still likes it, LOL!
Thank you so much for reading!!!
Hi Claudine! The noise from the compressor especially when attaching/unattaching the stapler gun scares me! I love your footstool and am sure your friend will as well!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for coming over and commenting!
I feel better about the stool just because you commented, LOL!
And the staple gun scares me also, hahahahahaha!
Hilarious! I am not laughing at you, I am laughing with you. It is like when I bake or sew. when it all works out well I love it and it makes me feel so homey, grounded and peaceful. But when it goes wrong then it goes so very very wrong and can be rather annoying! Upholstery is a LOT of work, and the corners are always the hardest. Bravo for your efforts.ReplyDelete
Dear Heather, thank you for your comment!!!Delete
If you want another laugh, please read this one...
It can be pretty frustrating, trying new things!!! Soon I will try to sew, I wonder how THAT is going to be!!!
I put in my phone to visit you at the end of the month, do not hesitate to remind me!
Love your blog..... and commend your upholstery efforts. It's not as easy as it seems. My blog is called cooking, crafts and freedom and I hope you visit.ReplyDelete
Dear Poots, Welcome!Delete
Thank you so much for your compliments, I am so glad you like my blog!
And thank you for the encouragement regarding the little stool, lol! For sure I will keep practicing because I believe I can get better, at least in simple upholstery jobs.
Sorry for taking so long to respond, I am on vacation and the days have been busy. For sure I will come visit your blog!
Claudine your footstool is a beauty! We all have those moments when nothing seems to go right, but it's such a satisfying feeling when it's all done and completed! Good luck with the finishing touches.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Sherry! You are always so kind!Delete
I have thought of you here in London... came across some beautiful boxes... I hope I can get them in my luggage, lol!
The hotel I am staying (my brother brought me) has these beautiful laundry boxes... the laundry comes all folded in plastic bags INSIDE the beautiful boxes!!! If I bring one home I will take a picture and post it!!!
LOL! You really got me laughing!! There's a chair I want to upholster but been intimidated to take it on. After this post, I'm definitely not sure if I should..LOL! Thanks for sharing your experience with us:)ReplyDelete
HAHAHAHAAHAHA!!! Maysem, didn't you love my happy face??? Oh, ignorance is bliss, LOL!!!Delete
My fried Kelley's husband is an upholsterer and he said I had too much stuff on it! She showed him the post, lol! Other than that it is fine! So I am going to UNDO the corners, take some bating out and try again! Please, don't get discouraged!!! It does look cute, doesn't it?? Perhaps if I sit on it for a long time it will close, hahahahahahaha!!!
