Extra Seating – When You Need It @styleorganization

 

Recovered! During the heatwaves, I like to work indoors with the A/C on! I had these two stools that were beginning to look shabby. and I thought I would have to pay to get them recovered in the same style, or get rid of them which was not that popular with the family. So I decided to take them apart...

Extra Seating - when you need it @styleorganization

Original – The before.

With the top cushion cut off…

Side by side…

The new material which was a fab find that I have had for years and been dying to use.

Completed in a couple of hours with a staple gun. I placed the top cushion on top of the lower footstool and pulled the material tight and stapled underneath. They look great against the back of the leather sofa. I think I may paint the little legs green too now I have seen the pictures.

5 Minute Makeovers – The Laundry Basket Made Over

Laundry Basket Makeover in Windsor Ontario
Laundry Basket Makeover

It is hard to find an attractive & functional laundry basket so when the basketwork started to break down, I simply added some fabric that was on hand that co-ordinated with both the paint and the trim on the basket. Cut to size, folded over neatly to hem and then stapled, this makeover took only 5 minutes.  I love the fabric and so was happy to use it.

The Dining Table and Chairs – Renovated & Recovered

So pleased that I saved this material which has now been used to for the dining room chairs. Now we only have to renovate the windows, select window treatments, paint the room and rejuvenate all the woodwork and trim.
