Don’t you just feel the relief when you read that title? Put your feet up. Sit back. Relax. Give yourself a moment to stop and be – even if just for a minute. I don’t think we give ourselves permission to kick back enough. So I now give permission to you. You’ve earned it. Life can be so demanding of us. And now here I am demanding that you relax.
Coz I have another story. A re-creation one. And yes, like many others, this involves furniture I found on the side of the road. This time there were two little kid sized armchairs with two little foot stools. There were pretty cute all covered in stars. But the armchairs were beyond my effort (and skill level if I’m honest) so I just grabbed the little foot stools. It seems to be my way 😉
The first one was an easy cover – something purple for my daughter. I had some insanely expensive and not quite appropriate fabric I bought in Budapest left over and it seemed the best use of it to go around the sides. I also had some purple corduroy fabric which fit perfectly for the top. Check it out. It’s pretty cute huh?
And then it was time to ruminate over what to do with my foot stool. Whilst the first choice was fun and keeping in theme with my rainbow preference, the glitter top made it quite impractical.
And so it was back to the fabric stash. Where are you strong, stylish woven one? Oh, there you are challenging me. Hey Kym, look at me being all brown and natural. You wanna turn left from your usual colour? I dare you.
So, it suckered me in and the spots and stripes complimented each other. And this fabric was Strong and made to last. So I got snipping and stitching. It looked something like this…
And I like it. Lots. My feet barely rest on it and I don’t think it really matters. I keep it close by and it comes in handy.
So yay. Another project complete!
