Footstool: Before and (possibly) After

Okay, with inspiration from the Graphics Fairy -- I decided to attempt a footstool makeover.

Firstly, I recovered this footstool once already.  Thought it could look "better" or "cuter"....or?

Footstool Before

Plucked this graphic from the Graphics Fairy  Graphics Fairy :

One (well maybe 3 or 4) failed attempts at transfer:

After - wasn't sure I liked it so have only "pinned" the fringe for now:

 It's looking a little "dull" -- so thinking it needs maybe different fringe or another idea (sigh).

Followed all steps from 2 Vintage Sisters to create the transfer:  2 Vintage Sisters

Any input appreciated....

MARCH - so far a ROAR

Minneapolis - 2 degrees so far today.
Looking forward to spring in 19? days.
I'd be happy with something in between.

How about you?
If you're in a four season climate -- what's happening?
