Antique Footstool to Storage Chest Conversion

From this Goodwill find....

Stripped down to this....

We did remove the spring unit & replaced 

it with a wooden lid....you wondered, didn't you?

Converted to this.....

And used for a display at the market!

I like good & sturdy furniture...some day when I have my restored log cabin then I want to fill it with old and useful wood furniture and vintage or antique overstuffed furniture. A woman can dream!

Wow Sarah! Your footstool turned out gorgeous! And yes, a woman can dream, and sometimes those dreams do come true! :)
