A Long Awaited Finish

Last year {or maybe even the year before}, I made this ottoman/tuffet/stool.  It has taken me until now to find a trim to add to it to finish it off!

I’ve looked during that whole time and just never found anything I liked.  I found these two trims at Hobby Lobby the other day.

I’ll be using the flat trim over the top edge of the fringe and ribbon trim to give it a more finished look.  You can see how it just looks unfinished on its own.

I think it was worth the wait to find this trim.  Now I just have to figure out where, in the living room, I’m going to put it!

What a precious stool! I know how it is with needing just the "right" finishing touch. I can wait it out for months until I find just the right thing. Your wait proved very worthwhile, that trim is perfect!
