Hello Truly Lovely Readers!
I took a little foot stool and covered it with photos!! Read on to learn how!
First gather your supplies. You will need:
Foot stool (I got mine at Michaels)
If your stool is unfinished, you will want to paint it first in the color that you want it to be. I painted mine teal, and then once it dried I took orange and randomly painted streaks of orange all over.
After the paint has dried, measure the top of your stool. Cut your papers and pictures to form a collage on top. It kind of feels like you are putting together a puzzle. Arrange the pictures and paper to make sure they all fit nicely.
Take them off, and apply with a sponge brush Mod Podge to the back of the pictures and patterned paper. (TIP: I took a picture of the top of my stool so I could remember the exact placement of the pictures. I do this when I scrapbook too, snap a quick pic, then when you go to glue everything back down, you won’t forget where it was originally)
After you have glued all of the pictures and papers back on the stool, let it dry completely. After it has dried, take a piece of sand paper and sand the edges of the stool/pictures.
Now take your sponge brush and apply Mod Podge over the whole stool, pictures and all. Let it dry, and then do it again.
After it dried, I ripped up strips of fabric and tied them to the bar underneath. Why? Not really sure yet. I guess I wasn’t ready to be done crafting.
All done now. A little piece of scrapbook right under our feet, makes me SO happy 🙂 I love it when I use up pictures from my towering mountain of photos. If you are like me, and have way too many pictures and need more ideas on what to do with them all, check out the two posts below for some other projects I made:
