This project, like most DIYs before it, started out months ago with the seed of an idea. It was during my trip to Bruges. I was mooching around a décor shop, and came across a footstool. It was very cool: mid-century teak legs, with a really nice fabric covering. I was soooo close to buying it! However, I didn’t love the pattern on the fabric. It was probably an 8 out of 10. But I want 10 out of 10. What can I say? I’m picky!
