The Ugliest Footstool Known to Man!

Yep, I bought it!
And those are the words I used to describe it. I told my husband, my kids, my sister and my friends. 
Then I showed them pictures.
Some of those lucky suckers even got to see it in person!

And they all agreed with me.


No worries, it won't look like this for long. I see a beauty in there just screaming to be let loose!
That, however, is a post for another day.

Today I wanna show you proof that one mans trash is another mans treasure!

I was perusing eBay two days after I bought TheUgliestFootstoolKnownToMan, and what did I find listed as a "Vintage Retro Mid Century Modern Hassock"...??

Yep, that's it, TheUgliestFootstoolKnownToMan selling on eBay for "starting bid $59.99" or "buy ME NOW $69.99"!!!


Had mine been a dime more than the $4.48 I paid for it at the D.A.V., I probably wouldn't have bought it!

I hope those sellers find the perfect buyer who thinks this "Vintage Vinyl Hassock" is the best thing since sliced bread!!
I'm sarcastic nice like that. It's how I roll.

But, if it doesn't sell...

I kinda wanna call 'em up and tell 'em "It's because the rest of the world knows IT'S THE UGLIEST FOOTSTOOL KNOWN TO MAN!!!!"

Alrighty, rant over!

Hope you've had a fabulous weekend!



  1. Hahaha! It is pretty fugly! I'm excited to see how your project turns out! I see a gem in there ;)

  2. Oh my, that is too funny! And quite ugly ... but such potential for $4.98 for sure. :)

  3. That is unbelievable! I know mid century is trendy right now but really? Anyhoo I can't wait to see what you do with your much more reasonably priced version. Thanks for stopping by my little ole blog.

  4. Looking forward to see it as the "not ugliest" any more! I nominated you for the Liebster Award. Come on over and check out the details on my page. Congratulations!

    1. Thanks Kristin! I'm working on my Liebster post now! You're just so sweet to nominate me!!!

  5. Holy Cow!!! I think I said the same thing about ugliness when you sent me a pic...I guess it's true that one man (or woman's) trash is another's treasure. I'm sure yours will be quite the treasure once your done...and I bet people would happily pay $69.99...once all the puke green is gone!!!

    Leave it to you to google your ugly footstool and find something interesting!

  6. cool, so when it's hot your legs will stick to it, yeah, can't wait to see how you transform this beauty!


Thanks so much for your comments. I read, and very much appreciate, every one of them!
