Several of you asked about the monogrammed stool featured in this photo so I thought I'd share a little more info. The stool itself is an antique store find that needed some updated upholstery. I found some turquoise fabric for around $7/yd at Jo-Ann's and got out my staple gun. Once I finished I realized the stool still needed a little something extra.
I've had an obsession with Leontine Linens for the longest time--the photo above was actually the inspiration for my bedroom. So, I thought I'd try my hand at re-creating the Leontine look on my stool. Leontine has a huuge selection of monogram styles that you can choose from on their website so my first stop was picking one I loved.
I decided on the Alcott, which is the style featured in my inspiration pic. I blew up the image, altered the letters to reflect my monogram and created a template. Finally I traced the design onto a piece of felt I had laying around, cut out the pieces, and hot glued them to my stool. So there you have it, the story behind my stool! It was very easy and I would definitely give it a shot if you're looking for a quick, cheap and easy monogram.
P.S Thank you to everyone who stopped on over via Helena. I'm looking forward to checking out all of your blogs!
