Upholstered Stool and Vanity

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.  ~Audrey Hepburn

I felt this quote was fitting for today's post.

 I am trying to get back into the swing of things after a long vacation. Between the beach and Haven,  I have lost the momentum I had to keep things on track. Before I left for Haven I stocked up on several pieces of furniture. My shed is full again. I have no room to set up my new Ryobi miter saw I won. So it will sit in the box till I can make room.

One thing I learned from Haven is that the people that stood out were the ones that had beauty in their heart.  What am I talking about? You ask.

 The ones you remember took time to teach you a little thing that will help you better your blog.

 The ones that made the effort to invite someone to sit at their table so they wouldn't be alone.

The ones that look you in the eye and are really interested in what you are saying.

These are the bloggers that I will visit often!

I started painting a vanity that I had bought before I left.

 I loved the shape of the mirror, and it had glass cut to fit the top. It is not very old but it has nice lines. The legs were removed to fit in my car.

It had the cutest little stool but the fabric was worn so I replaced it.

I feel in love with this fabric and have had it for a year! It reminds me of Marie Antoinette. I think it fits the stool perfectly! Look at the curvy legs!

 So I took out my brand new Purdy brushes! They are the best!
I used my new sample of Annie Sloan Old Ochre that was in my swag bag from Haven to accent the lines. Louis Blue covered the rest. I distressed it and waxed with clear wax.

Then I put a little girly details on top! Everyone loves to pamper themselves don't they?

Turned into a better after! Love when paint changes the look of the piece.

Ready to be put in the store for sale!
