Old Grandma Footrest – Rehabilitated!
Grandma is going to mostly be used by a three year old named Christian so he can reach the bathroom sink to brush his teeth. It will be kept in the master bedroom (of a bachelor pad). I covered the stripped-down footrest with new cushion, chose a masculine pattern for the bachelors and a fabric that will hold up to a rompin’ 3-year-old for years.
Look at this piece of history. My mom dropped the “Revere” off yesterday. She got it as a gift from my grandmother when she was 13, so this machine has been around since the 60’s, it’s heavy and used, but definitely loved. I think I’ll start by making some pillows with leftover fabric from one of the restored pieces of furniture I’ve done lately. Maybe I’ll run a promo, buy a chair and receive a matching pillow!
