I'm currently making a number of footstools. I really like making them. They feature great legs (not mine obviously...), strong robust construction (you can stand on these without worrying), good cushion pad (nice and springy) and the best bit is choosing a completely gorgeous covering and putting it on!
This is the stool I've been working on today. The fabric is a green and bronze patterned chenille - its wonderful! This is going up in the on-line store today!
