Pre-Blogging Stools Project

As I get things ready for my upcoming yard sale, I thought I’d share one of the items I’m selling.

I had purchased three very plain stools a long time ago.   They had that fake black leather top and were anywhere from $6.99 to $9.99 a piece {who can remember after almost 20 years!}.  I had purchased them to use for seating around our pool table area {a place to perch while you waited your turn}.

I had found this great fabric on eBay {there was no etsy then either, and I got quite a bit of fabric off eBay} and I had purchased it to recover these stools.  I was able to use different sections of the fabric to show off the various “gaming” images depicted on it.

I used a teal {small} brush fringe that I had at the time.

Of course, these days, I would probably have painted the legs.

Just one of my many projects done before blogs were even born!

I think they're so cute and that fabric is really fun. I'm sure they won't last long at your sale. Can I come shop?

That was a perfect fabric for a game room. I have a few of those "before blogging" projects in my house. Some I might show now...a lot of them, not so much!
Good luck with the sale.

As I told your sister, batten down the hatches and be safe! I think you might be canceling that garage sale of yours!!

Kathy,

The stools will sell very quickly. I love the fabric and the trim really makes them extra special.

Best of luck with your garage sale.
Our weather is not looking good at the moment.

Thanks for your well wishes.
