on my thrifting list...small foot stool


I have been a bad blogger! I completely forgot about this series I said I was going
 to do, the debut of 'on my thrifting list' was last December, and then I apparently
 remembered again in August! The concept was to show items you commonly pass
 up when thrifting in a setting that inspires you to think of them in a new way.
I'm back on track, and this is a good one.
How many times have you seen those little old dated foot stools for a steal?

They're the perfect piece to inject a little personality into your room with
a fun patterned fabric, and would be an easy DIY upholstery project. If you're
 not the DIY type, it would be super reasonable to have done professionally.

I can identify, Pam. I started a series on celebrity homes and did two posts on kitchens and then totally dropped the ball and forgot. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Love the step stools.

OH I love these footstool ideas! My biggest question is how does one incorporate a small footstool into a room which is already pretty small. Our living room sofa came with a large rectangular ottoman which we decided to keep because it can be used as additional seating and fits nicely under the window. That being said I always loved the two round footstools we had growing up. Thank you for sharing these beautiful footstool ideas! Have a truly wonderful Thanksgiving!!

This is such a great roundup of little stools that are fun and updated. I have one my husband made in high school in wood class, it's covered with faux fur and we all love it for TV watching :)

Officially adding a little footstool to my "must find someday" thrifting list - love your inspiration!!

Actually, I do have several foot stools and use them all the time. My Mother loved to do needle point, and these small stools were perfect candidates for her work! So I inherited three of them and treasure them. So useful for so many reasons!

Cute! I have one sitting in my basement that I haven't known what to do with... perhaps it's time to use it!
