show us your crafty bits

 
I'm so easily distracted.
I got side tracked for a bit doing the
Blog a Day with Claire
and I'm going to get back to that.
Then of course paid employment always
 gets in the way of crafting.
 
 
But then I came across this stool at Vinnies for 10c
and there was no way I was leaving that behind.

 
So I taped over the tears in the vinyl

 
covered it in some pretty fabric

 
added a bit of pom pom trim
(I painted the plain silver upholstery tacks
in glittery green nail polish)
and now the cat and I are both happy.
 
Well mostly happy as I know the tacks are not all straight.
Anyway .....
 
Don't forget if you look to the right you can see my Instagram
link and I'd love it if you found me there.

SNAP! I have some of that fabric too and a couple of years ago I made a simple wrap around skirt with some of it. Very cheerful fabric and it just makes you want to use and love that stool again. Lovely!

How bright and happy is that stool now! And the pom pom trim just finishes it off perfectly.
