Faux Fur Stool
DIY in PDX have designed this glamorous fluffy stool that is perfect to relax and put your feet up on or works well as a handy chair to sit on in front of a vanity or desk to put some makeup on and it’s a great piece to place in a teen space.
To create your own faux fur stool, it’s much easier than it looks. You’ll need some faux fur, hairpin legs, high density foam, backing fabric, batting, wood, screws and decorative nails. To begin, you’ll need to cut the wood in a round shape with a jigsaw, then you can trace around the foam and cut it out to fit. Place the batting down, with the foam on top and then the wood on top of that. Wrap the batting around the wood, trim the overhang and staple in place around the edge of the wood. Repeat this process with the faux fur. Cut a circle of backing fabric to size, tuck in the edges and secure in place with the decorative nails. Position the hairpin legs and screw them in place. Flip over your stool and you’re done. You have a trendy stool that will look fabulous in any room of the home.

Cracked Patina Nightstand
How to Nest for Less have renovated a nightstand and transformed it into a gorgeous bedside table with a cracked patina finish that looks just amazing. The cracked patina finish creates a textured, peeled paint effect and really is well suited to antique pieces.
To accomplish this fabulous look you’ll need some paint, light and dark antique wax, paint brushes and some of Amy Howards cracked patina.
To start the project, the nightstand will need to be cleaned properly. Then it can be painted with several coats to ensure complete coverage, using a paint colour of your choosing that compliments your decor and interior design. When you’ve painted the nightstand, apply the cracked patina according to the directions. When it has dried, apply a second colour, which should be darker than layer below it. When you apply the second color on top of the cracked patina, you’ll see it starts to crack as it dries, creating that fabulous antique appearance.
If you have a charming nightstand that can be rescued and redecorated, visit How to Nest for Less for all the steps to redecorate and achieve the cracked patina finish for your nightstand too.
