Little Ladybug Footstool

Another one of my flea market footstools is now upcycled and ready to go to a new home.

Little Ladybug Footstool on Jan Made It

This is very small—about six inches tall, and maybe nine inches in diameter.

Little kids love carrying little chairs and stools around, if for no other reason than they can. I see it at the flea market all the time. Toddlers who can barely walk will make a beeline for little furniture. They pick it up and carry it—how far depends on how soon their parents try to stop them—put it down, and with great care turn around and sit on it. Then they look up at mom or dad or me and flash the biggest smile. So cute!

This plain handmade stool sat around my house for a while. Then about the time I painted the Flower Power Table and the Shabby Love Stool I came across a some very cute ladybug images and inspiration struck.

For the footstool I decided to go with a yellow ladybug, for no other reason than I had several shades of yellow paint and not  much red on hand. I sanded the top and lightly distressed it.

Do you like the yellow ladybug? Or should I have gone with the traditional red and glossed it up?

Check out some photos of a real ladybug over on my photography blog, Cottonmouth Creek.
