I don’t do it nearly often enough, but another passion of mine is refurbishing furniture! 



I guess when you only have so many free hours in the day, something has gotta give. But every now and then I come across something that I simply cannot pass by. Which is what happened with these stools I stumbled across at an Estate Sale a while back.

I had so much fun taking them from this…

To this…



It was an easy fix with some sanding, a can of spray paint and some scrap fabric and piping!

My true passion though is getting down and dirty with a nail, hammer and staple gun – and truly taking a piece of furniture apart and refurbishing it! With an antique loveseat, sofa rocker, and baby glider under my belt – I always have my eye out for prize pieces.  Something about listening as the furniture speaks to you while you take it apart one piece at a time, figuring out how it is put together, and really just building up a good working sweat.  Knowing what the work of your hands has created.  I love it all! And once you are done, you have a piece of furniture you will love forever. The pieces I have made, are truly my favorite in the whole house.

Now as for sanding and painting things, that is another story. I love it, but am truly terrible at it! I have tried dressers and more simple tables before, trust me when I say – it looks like a 10 year old did it when all is said and done.

I stick with what I know, something that involves fabric.   And I truly love it.  Some day…




But for now, I thought I would share these stools with you.  Aren’t they cute?  Still love that Parisville fabric by Tula Pink :).



Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…



Happy Sewing!
