Un Franc

I went thrifting last week and picked up a very ugly little stool for $4.  

So, I went to The Graphics Fairy and found this 1 franc image:

I used this great transfer paper (Lesley Riley's TAP Transfer Artist Paper) and after printing it on the paper, I followed the directions and ironed the image onto some burlap.  Amazon had the best price.

Now to take this thing apart:

Off with the first layer of fabric:

And another layer!

And another layer!!

Finally, foam:

Too nasty to keep; so, I removed the foam and used batting and adhesive spray:

The board is underneath all that fluff!

(That's Luke...soaking wet)

Et Finis! 

I used Annie Sloan Old White for the wood; and used clear and dark wax to age the paint.

 Not bad for my first time.  :-)
