My Foot Stool


Last weekend I went to a tag sale and bought this foot stool, or I thought it was a foot stool.
Turns out it's a bench instead, but we're going to use it as a foot stool.

The material was pretty disgusting and even had a spider nest underneath.


I was looking for some fabric to recover the stool to match these chairs.


And I found this fabric at Hobby Lobby...


And it looks really nice together.

My plan, if I can't stop being afraid - is to make slipcovers for the chairs...
I think we paid $3 per chair at Goodwill and they really are pretty comfy.
But for now we use them as they are...


As you can see, Charlie is quite comfortable!
