Hi everyone! Isn't this the cutest ruffled stool cover you've ever seen? Since we put in a new kitchen sink and faucet, I decided to do a few more kitchen updates. One of them was to have a cover made for this stool.
Last year, I saw a ruffled stool cover on the blog The North End Loft and thought that something similar would fit right in our kitchen. So I had my friend Brenda who owns a local shop called Maibe Sew to whip one up for me. And I couldn't be more tickled with how it turned out.
At the same time, she made my sink skirt. I found the material at Hobby Lobby and it was rather thin, so she added lining to it. I'll have to admit that I had to convince Leo that we should take off the cabinet doors under the sink. But now that they're off and the skirt is up, he really likes it.
Normally the stool is at the end of the cabinet near the back door.
But I pulled it over to the area near the sink to show you how it looks with the sink skirt. I just think it's so darn cute!
You can see in this photo how the new stool cover and the sink skirt coordinate with the cafe curtains that I made when we first moved here.
Brenda did such a great job making this skirt. I don't have a sewing machine, and even if I did, I would not be able to make those ruffles. So I just picked out the fabrics and let Brenda do her magic.
I thought I'd flip up the skirt to show you that the ruffles are attached to drapery lining.
She even added a little padding to the stool top, which I know anyone who keeps me company in the kitchen while I cook is going to appreciate! If you have a plain 4 legged stool and would like a cover made for it, Brenda can make you one, too. All she needs is the circumference of the top and the height of the stool. Just leave a comment and I'll put you in touch with her.
My new stool cover and sink skirt are really dressing up our little country cottage, don't you think?
Looks like its a very beautiful kitchen and your update was awesome. Thanks for sharing your kitchen updates with us.
I like your idea about the kitchen updates. I think these ideas help me to update my kitchen and my kitchen also looking gorgeous after doing that.
Thanks for your great kitchen ideas. Keep sharing!
i would love to get a ruffled stool cover like this one, different colors perhaps. How can I get in touch with Brenda. I have no sewing skills but sure do LOVE LOVE LOVE your kitchen Sharon
Sharon, she made my stool cover several years ago but she has since closed her shop. If you right click on a photo of the stool cover, you can save it to your computer, print it, and take it to a seamstress who will be able to figure out how to make one. That's what I did with Brenda. Good luck!

Does your friend Brenda still make the ruffled stool covers? If so can you give me the info on how to get in touch with her. Thanks so much.
I need this is the exact same color you had!!!! Some picture look brown and some look black but my kitchen is black and green

I love the look, The stool cover is too adorable! ! Maybe your friend could just email me the basic information on how to make it? I have a square step stool. I would like to make one for it. It is like only a foot tall but I want 3 ruffled layers on it.
Love this room! Was wondering what the paint color name and maker might be? Am trying to find the "right" Granny Smith green! It's tough!
Love your kitchen and the stool cover. So awesome!! Do you think she would make me one. Would love to have one. Let me know.
I normally am not a fan of so much color in a home or kitchen but I pinned your darling kitchen on one of my boards. Your precious décor got my attention and I really like the color combo and all the details that make your kitchen so charming. You did a wonderful job. It is so cheerful. I LOVE your adorable kitchen stool.... OMG..I hope you can put me in touch with the gal who made that for you. Much appreciation.
Please share the information for your seamstress! I took the doors off and made a curtain with red ticking. I have an old stool that could use a "dress". Thanks for the inspiration. I've wanted to take those cabinet doors off for years. My husband was not a fan...now he is. 🙂
Thanks, Kathryn and your kitchen is cute as a bug.

Oh your stool and your skirt are absolutely adorable!!
You are to be commended on creating a fun and happy kitchen! The stool is beyond cute and it adds a punctuation mark to the rest of your decor. Have a wonderful & relaxing summer 🙂
Your kitchen is adorable, Jane! Great job on picking out such great fabrics. Congrats on being featured over at the party of "Wow Us Wednesday".
I just love your charming cottage kitchen! The combination of spring green with black & white is stunning. I love it all!
Lovely! Really sweet and beautiful home!

An adorable kitchen from a lady whom I adore!
Kelly @ Eclectically Vintage
Definitely adds some fun to your kitchen Jane! I can picture Leo perched on it when he helps chop veggies!
This is just "Darn Cute". I have a stool in my kitchen and I am tired of the way it looks. Now I know what it needs, a skirt. This is fabulous, I hope to find time to do this. Pinning!

Stinking cutest kitchen!! I'd take that over a giant marble fancy one any day.

Your stool skirt is so ADORABLE!!! I love it in your charming kitchen!
This is the cutest darn skirt I have ever seen! I am sharing on my facebook page now:) I already pinned it, and peeps loved it!
ooo, love your kitchen. The stool is adorable too. 🙂
Too adorable! I'm moving later this year or so and I'm hoping we get a new home with a kitchen I can make just as cute as this. This is so cute and my favorite colors, too!
Ohhh i love your kitchen !!!!!! i use the same colors though out my kitchen, dining and living room. My kitchen has 4 ft white bead board and the rest is this same green you have. all my cabinets are white.
Visiting from Susan's Metamorphosis Monday - your kitchen is ADORABLE. I particularly and especially love the green beadboard, the sconce between the windows, and the fact that you have GOOD linoleum. (I need to get over my hatred of linoleum after spending last December ripping out mid-century linoleum and several other layers of misery to rescue my original kitchen floor.)
I love the colors of your kitchen and the stool cover is so awesome! I want to find a slightly smaller stool and make a simular cover for it. I have a sweet little grandgirl that loves to hang at her nana-papa's house. My dream is to have all the wonderful vintage "touches" that remind me of grandma's house.
Thanks for the share!

LUV your new skirt (I had featured one like it about a year ago...it's so darn cute). I have been thinking about adding a skirt to my lower cabinet too...your looks outstanding. Thank you for sharing at my party this week.
Your kitchen looks so beautiful! Love the stool cover! So pretty!
Jane, that stool cover is just the cutest thing ever! If I had a spot in my kitchen to put a stool, I'd be contacting your friend to make one of those covers for me. I love your fabric under the sink too. I do want to know your secret though. I've tried to talk my husband into letting me take the cabinet doors off to do this, but he says it's not practical to have to deal with fabric if you need something under the sink. (I'm not sure if he's ever even looked for anything under the sink!) Your kitchen is so charming. laurie
That is just the cutiest kitchen anywhere!!!!! I love all the patterns. You have to be gaga's over it as that has to make you just happy to enter the room!

Love the kitchen stool and new cabinet curtains! So cute!!
Jane, I love it...both the stool cover & your kitchen! The colors are great and the cover couldn't be sweeter.
Oh, the stool cover is just darling and so is your kitchen.
Be a sweetie,
This stool is just beautiful with all its ruffles and beautiful fabrics! I love, love your darling kitchen!
Thanks for sharing your adorable home. The color combinations in the kitchen are beautiful. It is so special to live where your family has such a long history.
The addition of the kitchen skirt sure does add to the overall look of your country kitchen. I think it makes the green even prettier. Now you go girl........
So pretty and really brings out the other black white and green in the kitchen. Love it.....
Oh! I am in love . . . that stool is just so cute!
It is adorable...and looks like a very happy place to cook, or watch you cook! 😉
Pretty darling all together! Such a difference the sink skirt makes.
This is just adorable. I just put a similar skirt on my farmhouse sink. Love that stool.

I looooooooove your kitchen! The cabinets, the pulls, the frills and ruffles. Gorgeous! Coming over from Between Naps on the Porch and so glad I did!
Oh my gosh, this is just too cute for words, such a happy kitchen. fondly ~lynne~
I love the colors of your kitchen! The ruffled stool is too cute!
Jane I love the colors you chose for the kitchen! The stool is adorable and the sink skirt all of it pulls together and looks no nice!
Jane, how fabulous!! Oh my I love the different fabrics together like that!! The first sink skirt I made for my kitchen had three different fabrics, and I think it was my favorite. Love, love everything in your kitchen!! So much personality and style. It is just gorgeous!
Love your kitchen ! I am in the process of re- decorating mine and it is both a joy and a stress! I am going for a cottage/farmhouse look and am re- doing furniture and adding pale pops of color. Yesterday I bought rectangular tablecloths that will be curtains but now I need to buy rods and rings....one purchase always leads to another! Anyway....yours is really beautiful!!
Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co.
Love those ruffles! What a happy kitchen!
SO Cute! Your friend did an awesome job. Your kitchen is so cute!!! XOXO! Rebecca
Your kitchen looks lovely and I just adore that stool cover. It makes me what to go out and get a stool just to make the cover. HA! HA!
Jane~ Your stool is BEYOND adorable! Love the combination of fabrics and the ruffled layers! What a happy kitchen!
P.S. I voted for your topsy turvy planter 🙂
Adorable! Both the stool skirt and the curtain for the sink cabinets. I had some at the other home... been thinking of doing it again. Must get busy!! Really liking your green and black combination.
Hugs to you and Leo..
