Made By ME Monday!

...or should I say
Makeover Monday!


I found this stool

the other day at the thrift store and paid $7.99 for it.
I wouldn't have normally paid THAT much
for something, but I really liked it!
I loved the white color that it had on it already,
 but gave it a new coat of white just so I could call it "mine"! :)

 Then, I found this yummy polka dot material

 over at Joanne's... LOVE it!

I couldn't find my staple gun,
so I went with the next best thing, screws and...

 thumb tacks!

 Hey, whatever works!

My niece found some adorable rose ribbon
while we were ribbon shopping, and I had to have it!!
So, I added it to the edges of my stool and...

What do you think? Do you like it with or without the ribbon?
I can't decide.

I guess it's the polka dots, but I can't help but think of "I love Lucy" when I look at the stool. Love it!!

Hmmm. The ribbon has more spunk but it would be more versitle without the ribbon.

really liked the polka dot transformation. Polka dots just make me happy. :) Then you took over the top with that red trim. Truly inspired and inspiring.
Love it.

I personally LOVE the red ribbon. I have a chair that may look good with a similar frill...I just LOVE this look!

Natalie said...

I LOVE the rose ribbon, but I like the stool better without the ribbon. Maybe if it was hot pink. Is it hot pink? or red? Totally cute either way. LOVE the polka dots. ;)
