Though this picture was only taken to adjust the lighting on the camera - I need to show off my great stool. I purchased it for $2.00 a yard sale. Of course it was sort of white with an ugly cover. I planned to cover it for some time and did not. Then it was like magic. I was away for a day and my husband decided we needed a foot stool in front of our couch. Yep....he did it. I hadn't even told him what I wanted it to look like. He found the remnant in my stash....painted it and presto. Gotta love him.
