Little Footstool Redone

As you can see I’m still painting and redoing, this is my latest project and small, foot stool that was my mom’s. I used to have it covered with homespun and then somehow it was put in the basement for awhile, I painted the wood legs white and covered it with a pink rosebud pillowcase I found last month at an estate sale, so here is the transformation…
Shabby chic don’t you think? All for free too…I didn’t tug and pull when I stapled the sides just smoothed it with my hand, I read that on someone’s blog but can’t remember whose, anyway good advice and so glad I read it because it works!!!
A closer look, the pillowcases were a $1.00 and came in handy because I couldn’t find fabric that I liked, it was a quick and easy project which I needed to do to see more of what I’m going for in my home.
Now on to what I bought with my money that I earned and so sweated for.LOL
I found these canisters at Target my so favorite store right now, next to it is a bottle with a French label for lemonade, $1.99 at GW!
A Chandelier from Lowes for in the diningroom! I can’t wait to get it in there but the parking lot and rental comes first.
 New area rugs nothing special but needed to lighten up the this room and the diningroom and it sure does the trick. I found them at Lowes for $22.99 a piece!
New curtains for the kitchen I found these at Big Lot’s for $10.00 a pair, I like them I think, for now they are okay though, I have to decide on curtain rods before I put the tiers up.
I also bought five panels from the Simply Shabby Chic line at Target and white curtain rods at Walmart.

Yesterday was the first day of school for these two, they both got the teachers that they wanted and love school…so far so good!
I can’t believe it’s Friday already can you? I have an appointment for my hair today cut and color, it sure needs it since I had to cancel because of the yardsale.
Have a wonderful day where ever you are and Oh, I removed the verification on my comments so it will be alot easier now to leave a comment so please do it will make me so happy!
I’m joining the fun at Chic on a Shoestring and My Romantic Home today!

Your little stool turned out really cute~that is a really good tip about just smoothing it with your hand. It's too hard to get it to look even if you pull it tight.

I like your canisters and your chandelier.

Love your little stool make-over!! I have a light that I got from Lowes that is sort of like yours, but it is a small one that hangs over my kitchen sink.
Have a great weekend.
