A Living Tuffet This project will combine many different mediums and most of all it will inspire you to take any piece of furniture or canvas and make a whimsical masterpiece of your own! Taking ideas from a living chair and an upholstered tuffet, you will create an amazing piece which represents your own personal style and can be incorporated into your home or studio!

Is your style, red and black...or Old World Italian...or maybe Flea Market French....well whatever your style, I am going to help you make a tuffet to be proud of!!! All your girlfriends will wonder where you found that hand painted upholstered treasure!!! Was it Neimans, Horchow...or one of those expensive specialty boutiques...Nope!!!
