Refinished Footstool

I scored an awesome deal on this old footstool. This is what it started out looking like:

And it even opens- look how cute!

But this top part of it... I don't like it so much.

So I took it all apart.

I sanded, cleaned and painted the bottom of it a light yellow color. I removed the old fabric from the top.

I used the old fabric to measure and cut a new cover.

I then stapled it on with the staple gun.

I put it all back together.

When you're all done, put yer feet up!

Too cute! What treasures can I store inside?

Stay tuned for some other vintage treasures I am refinishing. Until then, I will be linking up to these parties this week.


  1. A definate improvement!!! What a great find!! I wonder how many others passed it up due to the fabric? Enjoy your new treasure...I'm envious!!

  2. What a great transformation! Last summer I found a super cute ottoman at a garage sale and started reupholstering it, only to find out I don't have the staple gun I thought I did. So it's been sitting half finished since. I love how yours turned out!

  3. Gorgeous little footstool- great transformation!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a great week!
