When I found this little wire frame vanity stool, I could barely stand to touch it because of the green cloth covering it. It was dirty and made my skin crawl. But for $4, I thought it was a good deal, and I knew exactly what vintage piece of fabric I was going to use to recover it.
I took it home and after gearing myself up to the ordeal of touching that fabric, I proceeded to unscrew and unstaple. As I was pulling the staples out, it was clear that it had more fabric underneath the green. That just would mean more staples to pull!
As I pulled the last staple of the green cover, I spread it opened, and prepared to turn over the brown covered seat to see what was so awful that someone had to use that ugly green stuff to hide it. I said to my daughter, "I'm scared!" and she laughed.
I turned it over and gasped. I was not expecting to see this hand painted loveliness!
It is beautiful! I guess I'll save that vintage fabric for a different project. This chair is perfect just as it is.
