DIY Project: Foot stool

I started a small DIY project over Christmas and thought I'd better finish it! We inherited a foot stool with a colourful printed base and cushion when bought the Bach but it now doesn't go with our decor and it needed a little TLC.

I thought I'd paint it white for starters.

Then I took off the old base fabric and replaced it with part of the leftover hem from ready-made curtains from Freedom. And my 12-year-old daughter (with not much help from me!) made a new cushion cover with the leftover fabric from Yardage Design used for the cushions on the cane chairs.

Now it all co-ordinates beautifully and I feel quite chuffed as it was my first dabble in upholstering (which was quite easy, really) and I had to delve back 20 years to remember how to sew a zip into a cushion!


  1. You did so well:) It looks super cool! Hugs and kisses

    Ps: I am hosting a beautiful Garnish party supplies GIVEAWAY today :) ...Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

  2. that turned out beautifully! These DIY projects are always much harder in our heads than they are in reality. Great job.

  3. It looks fantastic, especially with its other porch furniture friends!

  4. Great job, well done, the footstool looks super. Love the coordinated look!

  5. Cute makeover Jane and it all looks so good together. xx


Don't be shy! I'd love to hear from you ..
