Old 2 New

Remember way back when
{here}
I bought this lil treasure at a family yard sale?

I fell in love with the old fabric and the curvy legs.
She sat in the front room and we used her alot!
I love foot stools, I think every chair needs a foot stool don't you?

{or do you call them ottomans?}
If you are a regular reader to my blog
you may have noticed.....
I have been on a roll.... doing make overs lately!

{see my past posts}

This little treasure has not escaped my fingers
Take a look.....

Here she is now.... in all her glory!
I decided she deserved a new winter slip cover to make her feel pretty!
{I am going to find another trim to go along the top of the fringe }
I think it still needs a lil something there.
Over all..... I love it!

until next time xxoo Dolly

It turned out very pretty. I agree it might use just a little bit over the fringe but.........

I love all your Christmas decorations and reds in your house.

It's going to take me forever to check out all you have on your blog.

How cheery! I like that you can change it by makeing a slipcover. I also love the original, but this color goes so nice in the room.You are very talented!
