Before and After: Stools

A few more lovely pieces of recovered furniture have arrived in Vancouver recently.

Erin found these commonplace nesting stools (pictured below) and sent them off to Victoria to be fancified. I think they did a pretty amazing job of transforming Grandma's emergency seating, that spent most of their life in a closet, into pieces of furniture that will be the focal point of any room.

Tools of the trade

What happens when tools of the trade bite

What happens when the tools discover mold

And then, after all the labouring and convalescing....the final product. Hot pink Wallpaper print with appliqu├ęd Horse and Pointer? Wow!

No "before" photo for this footstool, but what a lovely "after".
