|*From Bar Stool To Toadstool- A Before and After Tale!* |
(I thought the title was so clever that I had to say it twice!)
I simply could not let the ugly BEFORE pic be the opening pic for my blog so I started with the AFTER!
|While out garage sailing last week, my hubs had 3 UGLY bar stools paid for and in the back of the truck before I could blink! I almost cried! The cruddy, brown corduroy cushion brought back all sorts of horrible early 80's memories! Ugh!|
|I thought maybe things could be better UNDER the cushion but NO! NO! No! |
These are so NOT me! So NOT Cutie Pie Cottage!
|I finally cut into my 2 dollar cutter quilt and thought that would make a cute cover but it turned out to be too bulky.|
|But this dotty fabric was just the ticket! I just cut out a big square which turned out to be too small and then cut out another square that was juuuuust right and stretched it over the offending brown corduroy and tucked it under its disgusting, old elastic! Wa-la! A cute little toadstool with a very Mary Englebrightish look about it! You think?! It fits in perfectly with the dots on my hutch. |
I just love a quick make over- don't you?
Speaking of make overs- I cut all my hair off! Pics to come soon.
I'm linking this post up to the Cottage Market for the upcycled party!
