Vintage Bar Stool Makeover

If you've been reading along lately then you know that I have been working on all kinds of stool makeovers.

So far I have 7 done and ready to take down to my space at the antique mall.

Today I'm sharing the latest of those makeovers, this cute little vintage bar stool!

I found it at a garage sale for $3.

Here is what it looked like before.

How do you like that ugly red carpet top?! ;o)

Once I took off the old cover I discovered that the foam underneath was badly stained and just gross so I used some nice, new, white foam and this vintage pillowcase from my fabric stash to make it a new seat.

I love these roses!

Then it got a flirty little skirt!

Next I had to figure out what to do about the feet... why they are gold when the rest is chrome I have no idea... but it didn't work for me.

So I cleaned them up and gave them a coat of hot pink paint for the "dipped" look!

The stool looked kind of out of proportion before it's makeover, the seat was so small and the rest so long and skinny.

I think the skirt and the dipped legs helps break it up a little.

What do you think?
