Rest your weary feet

PicMonkey velvet footstoolMy DH has taught me how to make an upholstered footstool…somewhere to rest my weary feet…I wanted one that would be large enough to share, just the right height & which could also be used as a tea tray table.  I chose a soft antique gold jacquard fabric which picks up beautifully on the shading in the fireplace & is super soft under foot. This fabric has an almost crushed velvet appearance & changes shade depending on the lighting in the room.  I used modern upholstery techniques & for definition a contemporary ‘Jazz’ flanged cord in brown/linen tones which compliments the fabric perfectly.  I’m off to put my feet up now…
