Adding A Little French To The Kitchen

Do you remember a few months ago when I purchased this little foot stool at a yard sale? 


And I transformed it to this. 


Well I can’t leave well enough alone.  It has received  a new make-over!


Karen, at The Graphic Fairy has the most beautiful clip art images and vintage printables that you can download for free.  I was browsing her search category and came across this fabulous Chocolat European advertising piece, with French typography. 

003 - Copy

I downloaded it to a printable PDF file and printed it on fabric.  For a tutorial on how I use my printer to copy on fabric you can go here.


Thanks Karen, I’m so happy with how it turned out and I love the new Frenchy look!  Now I’m off to see what else I can make using Karen’s graphics. 


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

  1. It was wonderful the first time, but it is stunning now. Of course I like anything frenchy, and this is fabulous. Love that ruffle. I need to go find out how to print on fabric, so I am off to read your post. Hugs, Marty

  2. That's so pretty, Gail! I love the chocolate looking fabric with the creamy ruffle, too! I tried to do printing on fabric, but I must have done something wrong; it wasn't a good outcome. I'll have to look at your tutorial for tips.

  3. I really dig the graphics fairy! Your little stool is just way too cute Gail!

  4. Gail I LOVE IT!! I really need to go and ck out the graphics fairy! Martina

  5. That is a perfect makeover! I love the graphic and the brown border and little white skirt really finish it off! I love it!!

  6. Hi Gail. Oh, your little stool is so adorable! The Graphics Fairy is so generous, isn't she?
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;(

  7. Super sweet!... Love what you did with it and that you felt good making over your make over.. I do that so often I suspect it might be some sort of weired DIY virus! :)

  8. I liked it before....but I LOVE it now! I use to be very into dark, rich colors, but now I am leaning toward more neutral...which is not good because now I want to change my whole house!!

  9. CONGRATS on being featured Gail over at The Graphics Fairy!! LOVE that stool! Have a great weekend, Martina

  10. I love the transformation!
