Lovin me some Ballard Designs fabric

I have been staring at my footstool for a long time now knowing that there was still life in it but it needed a new look... and here it is.
9 years ago my best friend who just happens to be my husband helped me make this footstool and this is the third re-upholstering that it has under gone and by far my favorite.
I had found the footstool I wanted in Ballard and if I remember right @ that the time it would be about $499 to purchase it.
So I hopped on e-bay and purchased the feet for $24.99 and used old cushions from a bench and took them apart and my husband constructed the frame.
Here is the before picture. And now I am off to vacume. I didn't realize how dirty the carpet was until looking @ my pics.. Oops... Life...
