This first is a footstool. See how the ruffles add some interest?
This is the before. What a major difference, huh?
This next piece turned out just adorable.
Found this piece at a garage sale. The upper arm is broken. There were some repairs done, but this part didn't hold.
Here is a closeup of the break. The one on the back is solid, but if you look close, you can see the one just above where the arm meets. I used my kreg jig to connect it along with some wood glue. I filled it in with wood filler.
Paint was next. I used MMS grainsack. It's an interesting color.
I sewed a simple ruffled slip cover for it out of dropcloth.
Are you a ruffle fan?
