I think I told you how junkin’ is my game.
I like hunting through antique stores, thrift stores, and junk shops.
If I’m lucky, road-side finds are a score.
On one of these trips to an antique store, I found a shabby little footstool.
This petite little footstool,
just a bit small,
caught my eye even though it was wearing it’s shabby attire.
The minute I saw it, I knew how I wanted it to look.
With delicate little carvings and short stubby legs…I knew.
I paid the $10 and took it home.
I cleaned up the wood, stripped off it’s shabby covering,
and went shopping for the perfect fabric.
At last, and with some time passing (six months or more),
I found some faux fur leopard print.
Because you know… I never met a leopard that I didn’t like!
With the faux leopard print fabric and a bit of gold braid trim,
I began the makeover.
Adding the rustic charm – not too much, not too little,
not too fancy, not too plain.
The make-over ended like this.
They say that leopard print is a neutral and can go with everything.
I think I agree!;)
Maybe adding a little rustic romanticism –
I think I want to express myself with this little footstool
wearing some faux animal print.
Love leopard print. So fun to add to a room.
I like cozy and comfortable rooms and leopard print helps add to that.
Even in black and white, leopard is fun.
Tucking it next to a favorite red chair…
it looks good holding a few old books.
