The sewing stool update is part of the Fab Furniture Flipping Contest. I purchased the piece last year and could not decide what I wanted to do with it. When I heard the theme for this months contest “Geometric” I knew exactly what I wanted to incorporate. I have been working on “half squares” in non quilting speak they are called triangles. They were going to be the geometric aspect. I requested a quart of black glaze and white milk paint. I was so pleased with how smooth the white milk paint went on that I decide to save the glaze for another project. If you want to learn how to make the half squares that is a different post that I have to write up. I have not perfected them YET! so stay tuned for tips.
