doll house re-do ♥ part 4

!!!doll house frenzy over here at sevensisters!!!
so here is my last and final post about this doll house remodel then i'm on to other exciting things...
i have to say i'm super excited about how everything turned out...my plan was to "simply" (uh-huh)...(huge eye roll) redecorate this little doll house find a table for it somewhere (like target) put it in my daughter's room and be done with it....
42 hours later....765 dollars in the hole (exaggeration) here is the final deal...
i never found a table i quite liked for a price i quite liked :)...but it ended up being my favorite part of the whole project, i love the way this table looks with the house...much thanks to my aunt who taught me how to sew this band/skirt for the table :) thanks aunt P!!

i've now discovered i love Modge Podge and it works on anything & everything and you really can't goof it up, hardly at all, not much...too much...unless you're a free spirit/tinkerbell-ish type person :P (giggle)
so here it is...thank you everyone for following me on this long and indecisive journey (pink or teal? paisley or gingham?) i don't know where i'll go from here, but i think pear honey, leg warmers & items of the Christmas nature are calling my name...


...Stools ♥ Tutorial...
Materials needed:
wooden stool (got mine @ joann's)
fabric, batting, foam, ric rac,
craft paint, acrylic sealer or mod podge,
foam brushes,
staple gun


...cover sides and underneath with craft paint
(something the kiddies can help with!!)...




...cover with mod podge, let dry 15-20 min between coats ( i did 2 coats)...
.


...layer material, batting and foam to fit around top of seat, leaving enough for folding under and stapling...



...staple under lip of seat...



...glue ric rac with hot glue gun...









...as promised...some cool pics of the purple lumpy room...♥









♥ verse i found this week...Isaiah 40:11♥
He shall feed his flock like a shepherd:
he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them in his bosom,
and shall gently lead those that are with young.
