The tiled footstool

This one has a story. It comes from a man who was emptying his beloved dad old flat, and was trying to give away as much as he could instead of putting them to trash. The flat was full of old memories. I choose this cute little footstool thinking that I’ll do something nice with it. It was very dusty at that time (and not grey, grey colour was a test). It was covered with an old very dusty fabric and was originally simply in wood.

I took it to my art studio and forgot about it for years until very recently when I finished to cover my own pallet table with cute little metro tiles. I thought it would be great to use the left over to this stool and make it unique. So I removed the fabric and cleaned the stool. And I glued those tiles. I repainted the stool with another colour and waxed it. So voila its story. A tiled footstool made from an old second hand wooden stool and recycled mini metro tiles.

A bit of details: the wooden footstool is painted using Aquamarine- Deep 198 from Little Green, and waxed using Libéron wax for a distressed finish. The top is covered with little white metro tiles. Please note that tile is a shiny material, and can easily be cleaned using white vinegar. Size: 47.5cm Length x 37.5cm Width x 34.5 cm height Size of the seat: 35cm x 45cm
