New Year, New Hobby

I've always fancied having a go at upholstery, but never seemed to get round it that was until a friend introduced me to Jayne . 
Jayne has a mobile upholstery business and teaches her skills weekly in a little Chapel just a few miles from where i live. 
I''m really enjoying it and hope to achieve better things in the future.

This little stool is the first of my projects. 

 Sitting nicely in front of the fireplace.

Tools of the trade


  1. The stool looks absolutely gorgeous. I love the fabric

  2. Your stool looks very professional indeed and very smart. I had a go a few years ago at covering the lid of a vintage Lloyd Loom (I think that's what it's called) bedroom laundry bin/stool. I had the help and tools of a friend who's done his herself although left to my own devices I don't think I'd do it again. Hope you enjoy your new hobby and look forward to seeing more. P x

  3. Great job, I love it :) keep up the good work!

    Bee happy x

  4. I love your revamped stool. It's so dinky and sweet-looking. Tres chic.

  5. Love your stool, just the sort of thing to encourage you to put your feet up in front of a roaring fire.
    Look forward to seeing other projects in the future.
    I found you through Niki's blog.
    Please visit my humble blog as I've just started blogging again after a long break and I'm not getting any traffic... any ideas gratefully received. Many thanks.
    Stay warm

  6. How brave - I've never tried upholstery - amazing results :)
