Throughout the Borderline Brilliant Embroidery Contest we will be sharing projects that might inspire your own entry. A few weeks ago I reupholstered a footstool in oilcloth, this past weekend I used the artwork on this Melody Miller fabric as a template and created an embroidered version. This $10 footstool is now my daughters favorite hangout. But do you want to know a secret about this little seat?
What better place for a crafty kid to store a few of her favorite supplies?
Embroidering over fabric seems pretty easy, right? It is!

This looks great. What paint color did you use for the base? Thanks!
I threw away the can so I’m not sure but it was just a basic rustoleum dk gray. It’s looking more blue here than it is in person.
Will you make me one too please!? Thank you!
It’s so easy! You just need to find a stool. : )
I love the hidden space…did you add the hinge and make a box of the base or were you just lucky enough to find a stool with that feature?
It was already like that Amanda, but I have seen this style before so keep an eye out for one!
I found a stool exactly like this today for $2.00 and am inspired by your post!! Thanks!
holy cow, fast forward. this morning 2019 I am starting to re-cover EXACTLY the same footstool. Exact same fabric. And wood color. I wondered how it would look painted!! thanks for this. did you have to get different hinges to allow for the more foam/fabric? I love this. I’ll post mine later if this is still up
