Foot-stool Makeover

I’ve always loved the idea of taking something old and giving it new life.  When I was in college I would spend hours in Value World (a thrift shop in Ypsilanti) with my room-mate Katie, looking through the racks for the perfect item of clothing that I could take home, give it a nip and tuck and create something brand new.  One of my favorite finds was a men’s suit vest that I took in on the sides. That vest spent many hours on various dance floors around Eastern Michigan’s campus (and it’s waiting patiently in my dresser drawer for the day when I can squeeze into it again).  Another favorite was an AMAZING vintage mustard yellow leather jacket that I would give my left foot to have back; I’m pretty sure I left it at a party… Pretty sure.

Since we’re trying to re-do parts of our house on a budget, I’ve decided to apply this vintage re-invention idea to my house.  I’ve been checking out clearance shelves at places like Hobby Lobby and Home Goods, and I’ve found a few good bargains!  One being this cute little foot-stool at Hobby Lobby for $3.00!!  It’s a very plain stool with very little personality.  But with a little foam and fabric, it’s unrecognizable and, if I do say so myself, ADORABLE!!!

Katie would be so proud!  🙂
