Thrifting with Rhoda

Rhoda from Southern Hospitality is having a Thrifting party where you post something you got at a yard sale. I DON'T have any before pictures of this. It's a small bench or footstool. I've seen a few at other blogs. Does anyone know what they are? The seat lifts up. I wonder if it was to a vanity or something?


I passed this up about 3 times before I bought it. The legs were brown and the seat was just plain nasty. But it was just $1.00 so I took it home. I painted it black and covered it with checked fly material.
Like I said before, I'm always changing things. I found this material and I like it too. This is just laying on top. I'm not sure if I'm going to put it on permanently or not. It's gold diamond pattern with small black diamonds.
Go on over to Rhoda's and see all the other great thrifting finds!

Oh, I love that little stool. I bet it was from a vanity & just for the record, that first fabric is gorgeous, I'd keep that one on there. Thanks for playing this week!

Your little stool is a real find. I think it might be a sewing bench that you use at a sewing machine. My aunt had one that looked like that. Anyway, no matter what, it is a real treat. Thanks for sharing.

This little stool is so neat. I love to change out the fabric on pieces like this. A remnant can change the whole look, for a little bit of money.

Hey girl...can't help you with the cell phone thingy...I did do laundry for the middle Burly once when his machine broke and when I took the clothes back to him I said 'thanks for that great tip' he said 'what tip?' I said that $20 bill I found in the washing machine when I took your clothes out! lol lol I love that little stool and the black fabric...old piano stools use to lift up like that to store sheet music in...thanks for coming by sweetie and I hope both of you have a fantastic Mother's Day weekend!
