Distressed Footstool with Handmade Pillow


While putting together our guest bedroom, thought I would add this cute footstool, long forgotten in the storage room.  This footstool needed  a quick fix and a little paint.  I distressed the furniture using latex flat paint a combination of both white and off-white and distressed with fine sandpaper.  After drying I added Ann Sloan Wax.  The pillow is made of linen, my favorite fabric for  decor projects and  hot glued rosettes (tutorial here).  This cute footstool is at the end of the bed for now, but I might move it as time goes by.  Take a look at some pics of my low budget foot stool makeover...It probably cost about $5.00 to redo.  Hopefully this will inspire you all to take out an old piece of furniture and make it your own work of art.
