Do you remember this foot stool bench thing that I picked up at GoodWill awhile ago? It has been out in the garage ever since I bought it. I had the fabric, batting, and tacs to redo it, just never found the time. Well, with the sale looming and needing to clean the garage out this weekend, I finally did a quick makeover on it yesterday. It was a gorgeous day out, so I took it to the back porch and stripped it, cleaned it, and painted it.And here it is done! I painted it "pearwood" by Olde Village paints, the same as my fireplace mantel, and the fabric is a brown ticking with black upholstery tacs. The top of it looked a lot better when I finished it, but the kids decided they really liked it, so after a day's worth of them sitting and climbing on it, you can see the results. Oh well, it is meant to be used.
And I kept forgetting to share this little rocker that my daughter bought for me at a local antique/junk store. You know my fondness of children's rocking chairs, so when I saw this one, I fell in love with it. I have never seen one like it before. I have seen adult versions of the carpet bag rockers, but this one is so small, just Mason's size. Anyone know anything about it? Age? Value?
And the whole thing collapses too.
And here is Mason enjoying the bench.
Have a lovely weekend, it will be full of work for us!
