Hello fellow bloggers and creators! I can’t believe it is almost the middle of June. It has been a very busy and a hectic couple of weeks around my outfit. I have been off team roping and working at school to wrap up the end of the school year with loads of fun activities for middle school kids and not able to post.
On a recent trip to the local thrift store I located a shabby footstool that had a cracked faux leather top. It was not dainty or cute, but it was a fantastic little size and had me from the beginning. I gave the clerk $3.00, loaded it up, and took it home. I wish that I had taken a before picture, but I did not.
I knew that the shabby little ‘chair partner’ needed a makeover. Like a little Wild West stylin’ for Wild West living…
After much debate on how she should be styled, I got to work and painted her wood frame red, reupholstered her top with a bit of zebra printed upholstery fabric, and added fringe for charm. I love fringe!
It’s a bit wild, but it’s fun!
I placed it underneath one of my favorite cowhide styled black chairs. (I also restyled the chair with black paint and reddish brown cowhide. The chair was an antique store find.) Now wearing faux zebra and black fringe the little stool fits perfectly underneath and is a great conversation piece!

Happy Wednesday Yall!
