I thought I would have a fabulous “fix” for you on the doily stool (if you don’t know what I am talking about you can read my post on it here) but, in the spirit of full disclosure, I will let you know that I have avoided looking at her since I banished her to the far corner of the basement. Yesterday however, I had to do laundry and on my way to the machine, low and behold, there she was, sad and lonely waiting for me to decide what I would do with her.
I am still undecided.
Originally I only had few on – less is more – but it looked weird, kind of like someone had randomly glued some doilies onto a stool. Who does that?
So then, after some thought and input, I plastered the whole thing in ’em. I got the top mostly done and gave up.
So here is a picture of where she is at:
(please ignore the awful photo quality and my dirty floors)
Obviously if I were to finish this, all the loose edges would be glued down and I’d have to put several layers of a protective coat on it BUT I still can’t decide if I should finish or not. If I were, I think I would cover the legs with the paper and then wrap the cross bars with hemp twine but I am not sure.
I think that perhaps this idea would have worked better on something with larger flat surfaces; maybe a small table for a little girl’s room or maybe a chair that had a flat slab seat and back.
What do you guys think? Keep in mind resale value!
I am strongly leaning towards starting over and going with a different idea and I will not be offended at all if you agree.
Let me know your thoughts below and I’ll go with the majority on this one!
