Vanity Stool Before and After

Wow.  Easiest piece of furniture to makeover EVER.  And these things are so cute.  Whenever I see a cheap one at a yard sale, I snatch it up fast.  (You can see the first one I redid using a homemade stencil HERE.)

Look past the overcrowdedness of this nursery and check out the window.  See that window?  Well, it no longer exists.  In it's place is not wall and a midget sized door opening up into a play nook that overlooks the living room.  Someday I'll get around to posting about that little play nook!  But now notice the curtains.  Sine the window disappeared, I have some nice upholstery fabric at my disposal!
The metal on this chair was a bit rusty so I gave it a good coat of Rustoleum Primer spray paint first.  Then Used a light blue spray paint on top.  Stapled the upcycled curtain over the cushion on the underside and wal-la.  Good as new and cute to boot. :)

  1. Kammy that stool is really cute! I'm going to keep my eye out for one.

  2. It' amazing how something so simple as paint and fabric can make such a big difference!

  3. Oh, Kammy, this is gorgeous! Cute is an understatement! And such a great deal too :)

  4. Those are such cute stools, Kammy! I've seen a few over the past several months and would like to buy them to fix up, but I have no place to put them since we down-sized. Love that you were able to reuse the fabric from the drapery panels. I do that, too. I am just reusing a valance I had made into a little chair pad for my granddaughter.

  5. Cool! I'm in the process of restoring one of these stools myself. It's surprisingly sturdy and just the right size for our tiny guest bedroom.
