Footstools are the diminutive little sister of the ottoman. I am currently Desperately Seeking A Footstool or two. This lovely painting by Mary Cassatt will give you a hint as to why I need two footstools.
Desperately Seeking A Footstool
Accepting defeat, I am now trying to come up with ways to lessen the impact on his spine. I don’t really have the room or the desire for a ramp or doggie steps. This leaves footstools. I already have one in my office that he uses quite willingly, so now I need to find one for the living room and one for the family room. I’ve checked all my favorite spots such as Homegoods and Kirkland, but can’t find one that would really suit our decor. I did see this classic footstool from Ballard Designs that can be upholstered in a wide range of fabrics or COM (customers own material).
Checking out Etsy, I found this Scottie footstool from Good Wood Dogs. It’s perfect if you desire kitsch.
Also high on the cute factor is this footstool currently up for bid on eBay.
More eBay offerings.
The following two images are up for auction. I REALLY love the second stool. It has that certain something that says, “I want to live in Laura’s home and be jumped on by a very cute dog. ” 🙂
Of course buying a footstool specifically for a dog leaves some people wondering if I will soon be hanging the artwork of C.M. Coolidge, an American painter best known for his series of humanized dogs, on our walls.
Even though his “Bold Bluff” and “Waterloo” sold in 2005 for $590,400.00, I promise I will not go completely to the dogs.
