I have FINALLY finished the second vanity stool I picked up at auction!! You can read about the first vanity stool makeover HERE.
My cousin, Jill, painted this one and I just finished it with dark wax and recovered the seat. This was completely drama-free for me because A) Jill picked the color and the fabric, and B) she did all the hard work by painting it. :-)
This is what the stool looked like when I brought it home:dresser makeover in Graphite?) I just finished with dark wax. The dark wax deepens the Graphite color and adds some dimension to the stool that is SO pretty.
These were our fabric colors to choose from and Jill instantly chose the yellow/grey combination knowing she wanted to use the Graphite for the base.
I do have ONE little confession to make... Before Jill came to the rescue, I had thought about recovering the seat with some faux sheepskin rugs I'd bought at IKEA.
I'd bought them to put in the boys room because I thought they were adorable. OF COURSE they care nothing for them. So I thought I'd just repurpose them into seat cushions because, FUR!!!
I got one and wrapped it around the seat to see what it would look like. As I was musing over it, my always tactful husband came up behind me and said "Is that going to be your Pimp Stool?"
I saw his point.
SO, here is the vanity stool today!
I did not do any distressing on this piece because I wanted it be a bit more elegant. What do you think?
