Piano Stool


Old, Rebuilt
Sits flat, doesn't rock
Thank you DH

Below are a few of the 'putting it all together' images.

You might have guessed that I tried out a different collage program Photo Collage and finished with PicMonkey.

I am learning more about Photo Collage (they have a tutorial). Very easy to get images from my computer, use the tools, add text, background. Couldn't find a framing tool. Lots of collage templates that can be rearranged, reshaped.

More playing around with Photo Collage.
Edited a bit in PicMonkey (frames, sizing, text).

To save my collage I saved it as a .jpg and then dragged the photo to my desktop. Renamed. Then opened PicMonkey to edit and save again.

Organ Stool Woodstock Ont. Canada 
(PicMonkey editing next 2 photos).

A bit of staging.

Thanks for visiting today. 

Build up to this finished project here and here.

  6. I love this and thank you Joy for sharing at the Say G'day Party! New liker via Pinterest and pinned!

  7. Gorgeous stool! I don't have much luck with vintage pieces in my neck of the woods, so live vicariously through posts like this. :) Thanks for joining us at Idea Box. Hope you link up with us again this week! Party starts Thursday at 6am ET.
