Mixing Vintage and New(ish)

Vintage camping stools + clearance pillows = awesome extra seating. 
Two unrelated pieces can turn into something fabulous if you think outside of the box.

These camp stools were purchased for $5 each at the flea.

I thought they were kind of retro cool for a summer camp display at my Ohio Valley space.

You know how hard it is for me to part with junk. 
I could not let them go.
What's a girl to do when she is in love?

So I married these cuties to two black and white shaggy tee shirt pillows from Tuesday Morning.
In the clearance section of course.
I had these on my wing chairs but had replaced them with different pillows already.

So now I have two amazing stylish stools for $10! 
Even if I had to purchase these pillows for the project it would have come in under $30.

So now I am kicking myself for passing up another camp stool yesterday at the Tristate Antique show.
$8 and the bad boy would have been mine.
What was I thinking?

Never pass up good junk people!
Yours in the one that got away, P.
Pin It!

Hi there, I found your blog via the wonderful Tamera. Love these stool coverings! They are works of art and I'm sure make great conversation pieces too. Bravo! Now I'm going to go check out some of your other posts. ;)
