Ottoman Makeover

Sunday I sold at the Topanga Vintage Market with two of my dealer friends.  One of them was going to take this little foot stool to the flea market because it had not sold at the store we are both dealers at.  It really is a very cute little piece with a nubby oatmeal colored upholstery but it was sort of plain looking.
You can see here what great shape it was in, but it wasn't very exciting.
I insisted she let me apply one of my Frenchy grain sack stencils to it to give it a little more pizazz.  I will confess the nubby fabric was a challenge, but the whole makeover took only 20 minutes.  Let's just call this week my bench makeover week starting with Friday's primitive red bench that I used this same stencil on, then this one, and I have two more little benches to work on.  The others will have a different twist.
I took it back to the shop today, and I do hope it will sell now.  Thanks for visiting.
