piano stool makeover ...

I found this timber piano stool at a Salvo's store this week, and thought it needed to be freed from it's brown vinyl ...


So, this afternoon, I took a bit of my Swizzle fabric and a staple gun, and gave it a makeover ...



The cream and teal of the fabric goes beautifully with the dark timber - I love it! This stool will be at the Show, where it will do double duty as paper bag storage ...


Check out what other people have found at markets and op shops, here.

I have to say... that is the fanciest paper bag holder I ever did see (or will see, make that...)!

That was in pretty incredible condition!! This week i swung by Revolve at the tip to find a BRAND NEW, still-had-paper-between-the-crockery picnic basket, tartan inside & everything!! Score!! Will use it for display at market, the leather straps are too adorable not to use to display something amazing. Love Posie
