I know that’s a strange title, but I’ll explain.
A couple of months ago I told you about a coffee table that I re-did. At the same time I bought that coffee table, I bought a stool that had been “re-done” with a John Deere theme. Someone painted it dark red and covered the seat with John Deere fabric.
I really didn’t care for the theme, so I decided to freshen it up a bit.
A little research informed me that this stool was actually a Singer sewing stool from the 1940s. The lid comes off to reveal an area for storage of sewing supplies. I’ll show that storage area to you in a minute. First let me show you the re-painted stool.
After a light sanding, I painted the stool with two coats of a light buttery yellow paint. A little distressing revealed some of that former dark red paint.
Since this was a sewing stool, I selected a pieced fabric (like a quilt-top) that had both the red and the butter colors in it.
Here’s that storage area with some of my vintage sewing accessories.
I don’t have a sewing stool, so it’s tempting to keep this one; however, it is for sale in my booth.
Do you like the lighter palette?
