Well, we have been busy making things for our new home and I thought you may like to see our attempt at making an upholstered stool for our living room... no miniatures here!!
Watched over by Maisey, our little dog, hubby cut the wood to size and together we upholstered the stool surround.
The legs are hand turned by hubby on his wood lathe....
I think he got him them match, but being hand turned they are not identical... close though!!
Once all the sides were upholstered, hubby attached the legs and we upholstered the stool seat using a wood base (my old desk cut to size!) The padding is upholstery foam and then we then covered it all with our fab Fuschia pink and grey stripe fabric :)
What do you think? I think it looks fab in my pink living room :0)
So... inspired, here's our next project... restoring this lovely old chair, picked up in a flea market for a song .... I hope you won't mind not seeing miniatures for a while... I have the 'bigtime' upholstery bug ;0)
See you all soon :0)
