"Lulu's Tuffet" Includes FREE personalization!

This whimsical solid hardwood footstool is charmingly hand painted in a palette of vibrant pastels: lavender, lipstick pink, leaf green, butter yellow, and aqua blue. The realistically rendered trompe l'oeil ("fool the eye") cushion is tufted with a button, with diamond pattern stitching. A pearl necklace drapes across the cushion, spilling over the edge--no doubt tossed there after a fancy party or dress-up session! Sturdily constructed, this stool will give your child a leg up for years to come!

Each piece is hand painted and made to order, and customizations are welcome (additional fees may apply if customizations exceed the original design). Contact me about adding elements or colors that would make this piece meaningful to YOUR child! In the examples, a few past customizations are shown: additional colors added to the pearls and a seashell clasp, or the substitution of a small bouquet of flowers!

Personalization is always free!. At the time of purchase, include a message with the name you would like on the stool.The entire stool has multiple coats of polyurethane to protect it, so clean up is as easy as a wipe with a damp cloth. Each piece is signed and numbered for authenticity.

Please allow 8-10 weeks for completion.

From beginning to end an absolutely wonderful experience. Perfect communications; very friendly assistance and the stool, beautifully packed, arrived earlier than expected. The footstool is really beautiful and very professionally finished. Lara is obviously an extremely talented artist.
