I have a Schizophrenic foot stool. I bought it at a yard sale and it was originally painted white with eyelet lace covering the cushion. I bought it thinking that I could use it to sit on, at my vanity. The style wasn’t really me, it needed a little facelift.
Plan B: It went from white to this really pretty steel blue that I have in my bathroom. I covered it in a steel blue and white paisley print. ( I had pictures but for the life of me I cannot find them… next project – picture organization!) One HUGE problem though, it was too tall! After much gnashing of teeth and hair pulling I left Plan B and went to Plan C! A footstool/extra table for my living room!
As you can see above, I was in the process of spray painting this schizophrenic foot stool a lovely metallic gold when I took this picture!
I used the same material to cover the seat that I had used to make zipper pillow covers for my new sofa pillows. Lots of jewel tones and just a hint of gold!
Here is a picture of the material if you missed my post on How to Make a Zipper Pillow Cover!
So now my stool has a really pretty gold legs and a beautiful top. But, it lacked something. It just didn’t have the pizzaz that I was looking for. And then it hit me… Mongolian Lambs Wool Fur. Hey don’t judge! Give it a chance – step out of the box! Seriously, I had seen a beautiful stool at a furniture store recently that had this wonderful fur on the seat cushion part and was dying to find something to put it on in my house. When this came up, I knew it would be perfect!!
Pland D: So I quickly ordered some on-line and recovered the seat cushion- again! Here they ( schizophrenic – remember?) they are in all their glory!
Here it is at another angle. A little swanky, a little blingy, a whole lot of fun! After it having four different lives that I can personally account for, I figured it had to be a schizophrenic foot stool! I love it today, but who knows what it will look like tomorrow.
Getting close to being able to show you my finished living room – soon. Really soon.
