Sewing Stool Makeover

~Sit in Style~

Yesterday I shared my sewing table skirt. Today I’m sharing my seating choice for my “sewing section” of my craft room.

Sewing Stool Cover

Several years ago I found this stool at Marshalls. I used it in my guest room, at the foot of the bed. It sat there, all alone, looking lovely…but bored. It needed a new life! Once I decided to transform my guest room into my craft room, I not only had an available stool…I needed a seating option for my sewing table.

I found this gorgeous striped fabric and knew it would be just right for my stool. It coordinates with my curtain fabric perfectly.

The hint of green plays off of the green ribbon on my sewing table skirt. It’s subtle, but lovely.

Sewing Stool Material

For the base, I used some of my leftover paint from my stenciled wall project. It’s Valspar’s London Coach.

Even after the fresh coat of paint, it still needed a little something extra. I used DecoArt’s Glossy Enamel paint in Glorious Gold in the crease of the wood.

I love the detail! The hand painted effect adds the perfect touch to the piece.

It’s a great looking stool with amazing curves and lines. It’s feminine and elegant.

The fabric is fabulous and the colors are beautiful!
