Roadside rescue Vanity chair makeover

TA-DA!!! Isn't she a BEAUTY!! .....But do you remember what she looked like before ????

This is how I found her on the side of the road!! NASTY!!! I got this from the same house that threw out my blue vanity roadside rescue, that you can see HERE.

So I started uncovering the old nasty old covering and used a leftover piece of material that I used on my Chalk Paint chair makeover chairs.

Then I used the homemade chalk paint recipe that you can find HERE
I love how it turned out finished it off with some distressing and waxing and it turned out wonderful. It fits perfect with my Huntley 3/4 vanity that I had refinished. You can see that tutorial HERE
Not too shabby for a free vanity stool huh??? So glad I grabbed that baby and put her back in the limelight!
I hope you enjoyed this and you have a BEAUTIFUL day.
