Quick and Easy Vanity Stool Makeover

Pin It

Unlike most of the projects I've been  blogging about working on lately, I have only owned this piece for about a year, ha ha, how did it move up the list so quickly?  

It was time for a quick and easy project and this one fit the bill.

I couldn't tell if this was painted first white, and then gold, or if it was white and very greasy/dirty.  Regardless, after taking the cushion off I hit it with the pressure washer and then a wire brush and washed it again.

When it was dry, I sprayed it Rust-oleum gloss white.

I wrapped the seat in quilt batting.

Attaching it with staples and my electric stapler, I love this tool, so much easier than Manuel's old manual stapler.

I then repeated the process with the fabric, 

after centering it carefully of course.

It had only four screws, so putting it back together was a cinch.

I have set it up here with the pink vanity table, but I can picture it with an antique vanity, yeah, that project isn't done yet.  So many projects, so little time!
