On my last fleamarket visit I picked up this cool 1950s footstool with the hope of giving it a new life with a change of fabric. I even managed to find the fabric at the same market - although when I bought the stool I had no idea what I was going to cover it with. In amongst some sheets I found an old hessian mail bag from the former West German Postal Service. I've never upholstered anything before and I confess it was a lot harder than I thought. Several blood blisters and bruised fingers laters, I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. A perfect place for my knitting to rest and an extra chair for when guests come round. Plus, now we have a little bit of Berlin's history sitting in our living room - and all for less than 20 euro.
I've got some exciting news planned for tomorrow to celebrate the beginning of my 365 challenge... can't wait to share it with everyone!
