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.
