Thrifty Thursday: Cut Loose, Footstool.

I’m sure kicking off my Sunday shoes now! My mom picked up this footstool with me, and with my sweetest daughter charm, I convinced her to let me have it. Hey mom! It was worth it! I didn’t even want to put my feet on the before. Now I can’t keep them off! Especially after a long day at my new ultra busy job :)

We found it at one of the estate sales our favorite estate sale putter-onners… put on. Then again, we’ve never attempted to crash any other kind of estate sale. But we do love us some Susan’s Selections. PSA: They take detailed pictures of every item you’ll find at the sale (if you go on the first day, and everything isn’t taken!) and post them here a few days before the sale starts. I love to do some window shopping before hand.

But even with the window shopping, and walking around the house, I didn’t even see this footstool that my mom’s eyes moved to like a MAGNET. It was $5, and I was jealous she spotted it. See, it’s not usually a good idea to go shopping with someone that has similar taste, unless there’s more than one of every item. This is not the case most of the time at estate sales. But like I said in the beginning, she decided to let me have it :)

It originally sold at Dollar General for $8 in 2004. The tag told me so. Sure I didn’t get a booming steal, but with different fabric, it would be worth all $5 she spent.

IMG_7032I realized something over the last couple months. I get the most excited about fall colors than any other colors.

So when fall rolls around, I go hog wild with rich warm colors.  I decided to use that as my inspiration and grabbed some scrap purple fabric to reupholster my new little foot reliever.

It sits so nicely next to my very first upholstery project: the landfill chair, and under my Diversity Thrifty vanity.

Of course, I have this obsession with curvy legs on my furniture.

What’s not to love (now!)?
