This is great! How did Bonnie see the funky style in that old stool?


Perfect fabric choice–the organic shapes in the print echo the shape of the stool’s legs. I’ve always wished I were handy enough to do something with that fabric–love it!

That looks great. You should do the chair too. More more more!


I want to buy that same fabric for my dining chairs. Great Job!
