Our Guild had a retreat in the spring. Turns out that I couldn't make it because of hubby's unexpected surgery, but I still finished up the project that I had planned to work on while there. I purchased this stool at the thrift store for $5 - I think it's just made of plywood, but after a coat of black paint it doesn't look too bad. I bought some baskets for the little shelves so I could store magazines (or baby toys) in them. Then I designed a geometric rug to make for the seat and dyed some wool for the border to kinda match the color of the baskets. I'm pleased with the way it turned out!
This is the before picture.
I hooked this pillow as a gift for a friend who recently redecorated her living room. It looks really nice on her celery green sofa!
