Cute Little Foot Stool.....

"Put your little foot....put your little foot.....put your little foot right in...."  Or, in this case, put your little feet right up!  Silly.  I know.

Found a very plain and mundane footstool that had seen its better I slapped on a little paint, sanded, added some glaze.  Then covered it with a vintage grain sack.....I. Feel. So. Creative!

Ain't this the cutest dang thang....

Love this grain sack....

This vanity mirror used to be a very drab color and it just wasn't making the cut.  So, some nice bright white paint and a little shabbifying makes it worthy of a pretty dressing table.

Loving these frog jar lids....

I took the little stool to the shop today and it sold right away.
Ya just never know what's going to go flying out the door.

Okay, everyone have a good weekend.  Hope you find something wonderful.

Love your stool. I have a salt bag and I am on the hunt for a small stool to cover. And I have never seen frog lids for mason jars - really unique! Pretty reflection of your room in the mirror - love that photo!

Love the footstool, Sissie! The grain sack fit on there as if it was made for it! I'm not surprised it flew out of your booth. Great vanity mirror; I have one like it in brown {espresso stain}, but it is stored right now because I'm using the actual vanity table as a desk.

Hi Sissie Sweetie...
Oh how precious your little footstool is (was) as it flew out the door. You did such a beautiful job. Love the cover. Where on earth do you find the fabulous grain sacks? I have never seen one before. Please don't tell me that I live in the wrong part of the country. I am so going to cry.

The views f . version. version of "Pandora's Tower". We have to applaud the gorgeous Lana Del Rey for her ability to keep it real despite the whirlwind of hype that surrounds her. Yes, she'll slip into a divine Antonio Berardi dress for a Visit the site music video, have a Mulberry bag named after her or drop the jaws of hundreds of Brit Awards paps in a bosomy Vivienne Westwood red carpet gown, but you'll find just as many pics of the songtress strolling nonchalantly in and out of Hollywood's Chateau Marmont wearing nought but a vintage racetrack jacket, scruffy ol' tee, Converse and a knowing smile. And we like that..
