Before and After: Della's Play Kichen

*So the last few months have been a complete blur between being a wife, mama to three kiddos and a full time nursing student! Now that school is over I've been able to edit a few posts that have been patiently waiting "in que" for months to be released. Well the time has come! Here is a post that oringally was to make it's debut back in December...yikes! Well better late than never, enjoy.*


Ugly overhead cabinets from the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store one day....

Before and After: The Ugly Stool {with mini tutorial}

My hubby {God bless him!} always finds great deals on old  vintage stuff for our home. Honestly this used to really annoy me but lately I've been inspired to create fun stuff out of these sweet finds!

 The idea began with this cool sample I found at my local fabric store. The store was practically giving them away so I bought...a few...and was excited to use them on some home projects. As luck would have it the fabric fit perfectly over the stool cushion.
 Using some upholstery tacks I carefully nailed the fabric over the cushion of the stool.
 Not pretty underneath...

















...but so cute when all is said and done! Originally I was going to pain the stool white but I think it looks pretty good as is. What a fun and easy way to spruce up an old piece of furniture : )
