A footstool nobody wanted, now they want to fight over.

But, it has Raylyn all over it. 

I started with a chipped wicker footstool from GW for, I don't know a dollar maybe.

It sat in my garage, then Ann Marie's garage and now it will have a true home in Raylyn's nursery.
Sneek peek below.

I added layers of soft batting.  

Staple gunned everything with one of these. Pure muscle, no fancy electricity for me.  

Pulled and stapled tight, right into the wicker frame.

Ruffled fabric sides.  I sewed together one long piece of the fabric, ironed down the top egde, hemmed the bottom edge and stapled as I ruffled.  

Almost there....

Now tell me, who doesn't love super huge pink ric rac?!

Tadaa... hot glue on that finishing touch and Mama Melissa and Daddy Sean will have nice little stool to rest their feet on for those two a.m. and four a.m feedings with Miss Raylyn. 

PS ~ I got to see Raylyn on a 4D sonogram today.  Yeah for full, chubby cheeks.  More to kiss all over.  She is absolutley perfect.   I can hardly wait and I hope the next 8 weeks go really fast!

  5. Gotta love a $1 wicker foot stool- have to! Love that you put it that first no one wanted then everyone many times that's happened to me when I remake something and make it somehow pretty again.

    VERY nice job, and love the pretty fabric you used along with the pink rickrack (oversized)
