Box makeover.

I've been waiting to spend some time on my sitting room and am working on it now before those Christmas decorations come out so I'm showing you as I go along.

I love anything that I can makeover to make a sewing box so when I found this little round stool in a charity shop for only £1.50 I was really excited.  It was covered in green velvet, not very nice so just the thing to play with.

I've just searched for my' before' pictures but it seems that the laptop gremlins have been up to their tricks and my pics have '''gone....'''

So here is the finished thing you'll have to imagine how it was.

I've added a handle so that it is easy to pick up, this is upholstery webbing which is stapled underneath and on the sides. I've added some blue velvet delphiniums to cover the staples on the side.

The sides of the box I have covered in linen and inside there are pretty pockets to hold my bits and pieces.

         The top is padded in the beautiful fabric which I am using on lots of other things in my sitting room.

                                              I love the look of these vintage style blue roses.

                                                    Tomorrow I shall be making cushions.
