Piano Stool to Plant Stand {Shabby Chic}

When did musicians make the switch from piano stools to piano benches, anyway? 
Maybe when fast food hit the fan?  The more Big Macs the more rear end?  No longer able to perch atop that tiny round little seat?  Perhaps someone didn't make the switch in time, had too many Big Macs and hence this broken top?  Dunno!  I think I'll go for a run today!

Ran in to the Jackson Antique Mall with my pal Maran awhile back, and fifteen minutes is NOT enough time for that mall!  But that's about all we had so I did a quick scan and saw this busted piano stool with the top detached for only $5.
When I brought it up to the counter to pay the oldish dude says, "You buyin' this for firewood?"
Now is that any way to sell treasures in your store?!

I took the busted top off, and painted the beatuiful bottom white and then distressed it with sandpaper.  You can't tell from this photo, but all sorts of greens, blues, and blacks from paint jobs of years gone by peeked through.  Such a lovely shabby chic finish when you get different colors 

And.... here's the detached top!  Now a beautiful wall accent piece, hung with jute rope.
I used a foam roller, white paint, and the Prosperity Mandala Stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils.  I have the 24" stencil, which was a lot larger than the seat, so the edges hung off.  No matter.

And now let's play "Where's Waldo"...  can you spot them in my booth
