Cottage Chic Vintage Furniture Makeover

Vintage Vanity Stool Makeover

Often when I come accross a great flea market treasure, I think of the saying, "when the world hands you a lemon, make lemonade"!

This wonderful saying so perfectly describes my passion for re-inventing and re-designing vintage finds into delightfully chic treasures! 

I thought you would enjoy seeing the process of this pretty vanity stool being transformed from shabby to chic!

Finished With a Pretty Pink and Green Stripe Cushion!

Next I have a gorgeous wing back chair that I am in the process of re-doing and will share all of the before, during and after photos once it is complete!
