Put your feet up and relax....

I found this footstool last week and couldn’t wait to give it a makeover.



 It was wearing this sassy number:


I bought a burlap sack at the World's Longest Yard Sale this summer for $8.00.  PERFECT!
              (ummm..... not so perfect, I forgot to take a picture before I cut it up.  
               I know, I know, BAD blogger!)

The sassy material it was wearing was very easy to rip off so I started with a clean slate. 



"Say ello to my lit-le fren...." (best Al Pacino voice)


ooooolaaa, I love this thing!  If you don't have a pneumatic staple gun, you should get one !! It's a must if you plan on any kind of upholstering project.  

At first I'll admit I was a little skittish about the POW and puff of air that hits you and makes your hair fly back, but after a few minutes I was a stapling FOOL




Now I'm not sure I like the color of the legs and am trying to decide what to do with them.

I had the bottom of the burlap sack left over.  Not sure what to do with it yet.  Can you decoupage with burlap?  Pillow? Wall hanging?  
hmmmm... I will put it in my future project file.



So it's Sunday, put your feet up and relax!

Oh the things I could do with one of those! Maybe I should put that on the Christmas wish list. Sure would be an electric staple gun. By the way, love the stool. I just found one myself for 30 cents at my GW sale its tore up but I can't wait to make it over :)
