STENCILED FOOT STOOLS - french painted graphic




What would you do with a large collection of old furniture legs? I have a huge stockpile of tapered furniture legs that continues to grow
because I didn't know what to do with them. I've run across different
projects on Pinterest but none really got me excited. Finally a magazine article changed that and I found myself consumed with an idea.



It was brilliant!
I'm in need of a footstool or two around the house, who isn't. And 
what a great way to give a new life to these simple old legs. I also
 have plenty of wood scraps to build the stool from.

   

I've built several so far!
My favorite is the GOTTINGEN burlap stool you can see
above left, it goes perfectly with my painted leather chair.
I created a homemade stencil for that one and the No 3 stool below.
 If you would like to make your own homemade stencil,
 instructions can be found here:


The rest of the graphics were done with professional stencils
 from the The Passionate Home. My favorite part of most
 projects is the building process but I have to say I did have a
 great deal of fun stenciling these stools and I still have a few
 more to do.


Next time I will share some tips how I built my stools with
 scraps from old furniture, and I will do my best to write an
 article about working with the stencils and maybe some upholstery.
