But that's not why I took this photograph. This foot stool belonged to my Mums Father. It has definitely seen better days, between my ex husband and my father it really is worse for wear. And there are one or two stains that I can't get off that cover, goodness knows what was spilled. I mulled over the idea of stripping off the green cover and putting something new on, but in the end I went for the far simpler option of making a slip cover that just goes over the top of everything.
If there are any more spills, (or if it takes on the aroma of teen aged feet. EEEW!) I can simply pull it off and give it a wash. If those pleats don't start to hang nicely soon I'll give it a wash anyway and press them in while it is still damp.
Speaking of damp, who ordered torrential rain? I don't think I'll be going far today.
