Vanity Stool

Vanity Stool

Really nice re-do!  this vanity stool was in pretty good shape.  I don't have a before picture:(
Let's just say the wood was in pretty good shape.  The fabric was rotten and ugly!  I found this really nice fabric at Hobby Lobby.  It was a little expensive, but it only took about half a yard.  I bought some new foam, and cut it to fit.  Used a staple gun to secure everything.  I did sand the rough edges.  The prevoius owners covered alot of their furniture in some really thick awful sealer of stain of some kind.  It was almost like sanding paint.  Once I got it smooth I decided to distress the edges a little and restain the whole thing.  Used polycrylic to seal it all after it dried.  Lovely!

Bedroom Suite

I know I say all my projects are my favorite, but this one really has been one of best ever!
This furniture really did seem like a lost cause!  I was in a really old abandoned house.  The bed was actually in an old store.  
This is how I found it!
pretty rough!  I had to pull off alot of vaneer and do some sanding! 

The drawers were a little sticky on both the vanity and the chest, but the vaneer was in really good shape.  So we decided to clean it up and use some poly, and they turned out really nice!
so our color combination was born. 

Took lots of time! but worth the effort! <3
