The Other Half

I know I said I was going to rest today, but I wanted to quickly show you what I did with the other half of the burlap sack I used on the stool you saw in my post  "Back to Work".





I used it on this footstool.



The fabric was shot, but I liked the crackle finish.



So, I left the finish, and reused the trim.  I carefully removed the trim.  Then, I just clipped the frays on the original fabric and hot glued the burlap right over the top.  After evening out the edges with a little more clipping, I used hot glue to reattach the trim.




Isn't it cute?  Okay, now I'm really going to rest. I'm kicking back and checking out what some of you have been up to.

  39. My son is always asking, "What's the sense in painting something old to make it look older?" The same applies to your stool "Why cover something old to make it look older?" I don't know but it always look better! I like how it turned out.
