Two New Finishes!
I recently purchased a little antique stool from a favorite antique shop. I LOVE the little cubby shelf open on one side only! I knew right away that it would be perfect for a small hooked rug on the top. Here is the finished project. (Sorry, I can't seem to take clear pictures anymore...time for a new camera?)
I really like the finished result. The rug measures 8 1/2" X 13" and is hooked in a 3/8" wide cut. I used worms left over from previously hooked rugs...yay! (I have accumulated waaay too many of them!) The stool may have been red at one time, but it has faded to this neutral color. I thought about painting it, but in the end decided to keep the primitive look of the old faded paint.
This floral mat was designed by Susan Feller, the same person who designed the table runner that was featured on the blog a couple of months ago. It measures 9 1/2" X 12 1/2", and is also hooked in a 3/8" cut.
Hope you are enjoying the wonderful sunny day that we are. It is in the mid 40's and beautiful...hopefully all the snow will melt this week!
Have a great weekend.
