VINTAGE STOOL TURNED LOVELY!!

 I LOVE footstools...
so when I came across this one at a tag sale down the shore last summer for $10, I had to snatch it up!...I finally got around to updating it...a little paint, antiquing glaze and some pretty fabric was just what it needed...
take a look at the before & after....
Above is the lovely after....below the stained, sad before...


  
                                                                                      










Love my new stool and it is now a perfect addition to our master bedroom...

  1. Love your fabric choice for the stool. A birdie medallion toile. . . in my opinion it could never get any better than that.Have certainly never seen that fabric at any of the places I shop. Did you order it online?
