Grandma's footstool

I inherited my grandmother's footstool, and for a couple years I have had it covered up with a folded quilt because it was just SO worn and tired.
Got the old tacks out - and even was able to salvage more than half of them to reuse again!
I lucked out and also inherited this beautiful near-match wool needlepoint to recover it with!  It still has the same look, just looks beautiful again!

I love the trim I found - it worked out perfectly for spacing of the tacks and the color is perfect too :)  I couldn't be happier!

  1. Very nice Karin. Isn't it wonderful to have these things to continue to pass on?
