Vanity Stool and Mirror Makeover

Add a pinch of pink to the recipe and you have a soft and romantic dressing table.

I found this stool and mirror at my favorite resale shop last fall. Under twenty dollars for the pair.  (more on that screen later)

I painted the stool creamy white, and recovered the seat.  This is what the seat looked like when I took the top layer off.

It was in pretty bad shape, very dirty, and a bit smelly.  So I stripped it down to the board and added a new piece of upholstery foam.

For me, the best part of the project was this beautiful vintage-look fabric.

And I couldn't resist painting the mirror my favorite shade of pink-Glidden pink ballet slipper.


And after.

I'm planning on adding lamps with ruffled shades (I think) and a few vintage accessories that I have yet to find.

So there  you have it -  my first completed project since before Thanksgiving.  It feels  good to be back in "project mode".  Thanks for sharing it with me.

Go visit all the parties I'll be joining.  You can find the list on my sidebar.

Until the next project,
