Footstool Re-do

It's only been 2 years in the making, but I finally recovered this footstool. It was nearly purchased at a yard sale, until the woman just gave it to me. Love it! The tapestry fabric never really fit our decor...
and I guess this cowhide underneath the tapestry didn't fit her decor. It wasn't going to work for me either, but I did find some apple green fabric, on sale, that suits our living room perfectly. Staple gun + new fabric = Happiness. Even Dear H gave it a thumbs up!
Also, I recently thrifted these books because, well, I'm pretty sure that I've needed them many times and just didn't know it. Plus, they'll come in handy for the sewing class that I started tonight. They're both very thick, but at $2 a piece I couldn't pass them up. Now if I could only learn everything in the books just by owning them...

It looks wonderful! I love how different people can adjust a piece of furniture to suit their home! I would of lucked out...that tapestry fabric would of suited us just fine! I wish you the best with your new sewing class. I'm sure you will be blessed by it!

I'd be soooo smart if you could learn from just owning the books!

Love the re-do! I bet you were surprised at what you found under the tapestry! Not sure I'd be able to work with the cow look either!

A sewing class!!!! How fun :0)

It would be grand to know every thing in the books just because you own them!

Maybe you could sleep with the books under your pillow and the info will seep in while you sleep...

I have that same copy of the Readers Digest book about sewing. It is shamefully being stored (in hidding) in my closet. My mom is going to teach me how to really truly sew this summer. I hope your sewing class goes well! You are already so good at it! Have a wonderful week :o)
