Furniture Rehab - An Update

Do you remember this stool from my giveaway a month or so ago?


Well, it was won by Valarie Lea from Tennessee. The deal was that I would rehab it specifically for whomever won my giveaway. And I did!

Valarie told me that it would be used as extra seating in her family room and that she had a lot of brown leather and black wood in the room. I have those same colors in my family room so I decided to make her something that I would like and hope that she would like it too.


I think she did. This was her comment on Twitter last night "Just got home!!! Opened my package from Kimba!!! All I have to say is I Looooovvvvvveeeeeee IT!! It is TOTALLY AWESOME!!! HAPPY DANCE!!!!"

Whew! She took even better pictures of it and posted them on her blog. Love her!

Make sure you check out my bracelet giveaway going on right now! And stop back tomorrow when I'll announce the winner and start another contest! More awesome free stuff!

And Nester has a Mr. Linky party going on for classy, crafty moms to link up with their online shops.

Liza said...

omg that stool is AWESOME!!! I love the fabric and the paint together. Any chance you can post directions on how to recover chair cushion like that? I have dining room chairs with fabric on them and my kids have totally ruined them. They definitely need to be redone but I have no clue where to even begin! Thanks!

Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Amazing and just beautiful! I'm glad to see that she likes it too.

Okay, I've got to figure out what this twitter thing so many people mention. I hate being in the dark. LOL.

I'm having a give-away and all you have to do is leave a comment on my blog (under the give-away post) if you're interested.
