With all of the changes taking place in my sun room, this little foot stool seemed to stand out - in a not so good way.
I love the stool itself and the meaning behind it. To brief you, my mother did the needle point and gave it to my late grandmother who used it every day for many years. My goal was to preserve what is there, but to cover it with something that will work with the neutral pallet in the room and add more texture, the key to getting a neutral room to work. Needlepoint was not injured in the process.
I decided to use a scrap of burlap that was left from another project. I made a stencil from freezer paper with the number 1938, the year our house was built, and filled it in with permanent marker. You can read more about the how-to here.
