I have this stool Mr Shabby made. The lid is removeable for storage.
Nice. Functional. We put it down at the Corner Nest.
Yet everytime I walked into the space and looked at it
my "boooor-ING" antennae would wave like the feelers of a frantic insect.
So I brought it home, put it up on the worktable and started thinking. In fabric.
I grabbed a piece of fabric which happened to be a bit of dupioni silk I have. NOT going to happen in silk! But at this point I was just looking for the idea of it. Out came the clips. And I knew I found my answer. But what kind of fabric did I want to use?
I had nothing on hand that struck my fancy.
Wait! What a great
excuse reason to go SHOPPING! :-)
I found this sweet fabric that to me said Shabby Cottage.
Funny "think" happened on the way to being a "stool skirt".
As I ironed the backside I realized I liked the back even better than the front!
I do that a lot. Call me weird. But to me it looked even more shabby-licious.
Do you agree? Soft and cottage and shabby looking, right?
Flirty and feminine. Not boring now!
Still functional but now fabulous!
If I do say so myself. LOL
In response to a digital challenge for Digital Whipser, a Ning group I belong to I thought I would share this digital ATC I created last night . Absolutely not my typical shabby style But it does prove Gail CAN think outside the box as she always encourages those at Mind Wide Open to do! :-)
It was fun and it was relaxing. Just what I needed.
Happy Wednesday everybody!
