Farm House shabby chic stool

This was a relatively easy up cycle..the hardest part was of course getting the old red naughy hide off .  Although it looks a lot better than the before I am not sure if I am totally in love with it.

The material used to recover this is a old tobacco bag.  It has some age and some fading and some age spots.

I love the softness of it but wonder can you have too much shabby.

OF course when you can incorporate roofing tacks in to a project you just may be to far out of the box.  So I am having a love hate relationship with this little guy.  It is going in to the booth today to see what customers may think. If it sits to long there is always burlap......

Thanks for stopping by and almost Happy Fall!

  3. Too much shabby!?! Why, shut your mouth. It is perfectly primitive and I am admitting to stealing the idea of roofing nails for upholstery. Thank you for sharing this sweet footstool with Make It Monday!
