Final bits of foot stool

Herewith the final bits of covering the cushion of the foot stool - took ages to fathom out how to get these corners rather than an envelope style finish:
The base now had a piece of fleece blanket put on to cover up the bottom of the scrap wood:
We carefully positioned it into place and held it there with shelf brackets:
This is the top of the stool:
Finally, the whole thing:
It is just the right height, may well end up with a dip in the middle but it is my first (and probably only one), and I am very happy with it!

  2. Brilliant - that will be a very comfy foot rest. Great to be able to upcycle an old piece of furniture too :)
