A Little Something Something

Here ya go! The last sneak peak til the

BIG REVEAL!

Anyone else want to show off your bedroom? Maybe we will have a linky party?!

Anyways, I needed a little something to sit my lard butt at....


....since my old vanity is now my night table. Enter the dirty filthy vanity stool.

I love my vanity. It was the first piece of furniture that my husband bought me. I think it was a subtle hint that I should atleast look in the mirror and brush my hair before running out in the morning. Anyways the bitty one is infatuated with makeup and nail polish. She got a tube of lipstick and proceeded to "paint" the stool.

Grrrr.....

So I made a skirt with of course, pleats!



and made some piping



and threw it all together with about 873 staples




and Voila! A new vanity stool!

Now back to the old grinstone (aka the sewing machine). I still have a couple of projects to do before the BIG REVEAL on Monday morning.

Very cute. I feel the same way about my sewing machine. I like being able to sew what I want, but I don't like sewing. If I had the money to have custom made curtains, slipcovers, upholstery, etc...I would throw my out the window.

Maggie, this turned out beautiful. You go, girl! I am so proud of you. You are transforming every inch of your bedroom. I am so excited to see the final reveal! I have a vanity too- and a vanity stool that looks just like yours only in cherry! Mine, like yours used to be, is so motley and ready for a makeover! I am rug hooking a cover with my monogram. Goodness knows how long it will take!
Love your newly covered stool with the lovely pleated skirt!You are very talented!
