Re-Vintaged Stool


Having sold two of my earlier Re-Vintaged Stools (that were shown on an earlier blog) I feel enthusiastic about making some more. This is the latest, using a very lovely old fashioned floral Chintz I purchased a while back from the lovely Alicia, purveyor of all things glamourous at Time Worn Style.

Alicia, I promised you would be the first to see what I have done with your fabric! I hope you approve!

The lovely old 1960,s scrolly metal stool itself has not been altered and retains the finish I found it in less a quick scrub! Just enough patina and layers of old gold to give it a wonderful sense of character and age. Even the little plastic stoppers are original!
This will be for sale soon in my Ebay Store, post free to anywhere in Australia.
You are more than welcome to visit anytime!
