Sewing stool update

Sewing stool makeover collage

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.sewing stool before
