I was totally inspired by http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367900.0 this awesome stool.  I wanted to make one for a swap but I couldn't find a log...I had some offers from a thousand miles away for logs (if I drove to get them) but instead I went to Michael's and found these cute little foot stools.  I thought they would be perfect and MUCH easier to ship. They were unfinished wood and their size make a perfect footstool or a child's stool.

First thing was to paint the base.

Then I took hotglue and attached foam around the edge of the top.  Then I filled in the center with foam.

Then I layed out my fabric and turned the stool upside down.  Using a staple gun I held the fabric taut and stapled every inch or so, pleating the fabric along the way.

Viola! You have a mushroom foot stool!

One can never have too many mushrooms in the house or garden  Grin Grin Grin

Sunshine daydream
Walking in the tall trees
Going where the wind goes
Blooming like a red rose
Breathing more freely
Ride out singing, I'll walk you in the morning sunshine
Sunshine daydream
Sunshine daydream
Walking in the sunshine
