Not that I even have a whole camp thing going on just yet. I will, but grand plans for pavilions and things can wait - for today, I have a wee bit of furniture re-upholstery to show you. Two wee bits, actually.
Before: a little footstool, $5 at Goodwill. (They threw the ugly in for free).
After: A $2 scrap of upholstery velvet I bought from a friend's fabric sale, and some gimp left over from a previous project.
No, it isn't remotely period. But it's a cute, and useful little thing. The legs won't even be noticed amongst all the other stuff that I hope will eventually make up one hell of an awesome, lush campsite decor.
Before: Look, it's a 15th century plastic beer cooler! No, wait...
After: Now it's an ottoman! Storage and extra seating, how about that? Props to my friend Kate, from whom I stole the idea. :)
I do plan to build a pavilion this Winter (to have ready by Gulf Wars in March), but first there's all manner of little things like this to take care of: cushions and chair covers and tables, oh, boy!
