Yardsale Footstool Makeover

Last year I found this cute little footstool at a yardsale. I picked it up and put it back down a few times, but something just kept drawing me back to it. It was cute in the way it was made but yet I did not like the fabric at all. Which is why I… Continue reading Yardsale Footstool Makeover
