Hello sweet Friends! I have a quickie makeover for y’all today! I mentioned the other day when I shared my antique dressing table that I was working on a chair for it. This is that chair, only it’s a bit higher than a chair so I’m calling it a stool…maybe I should just call it a chool ha ha.
Here it is before. Meet the chool:
It was a sad chool, but for $7.50 at the thrift store, I dragged its sad little self home.
I was going to paint it white to match the dressing table, but then I decided to get all crazy and paint it Annie Sloan’s French Linen:
Okay not so crazy, I know. She doesn’t look too bad, but definitely not a good mate for the dressing table:
The style was all wrong. This pretty lady needed something more refined and lady-like. This dressing table sold already by the way. It lasted one whole day! My booth looked so good after I dropped it off and rearranged it. Now I have a hole again. That is a blessing and a good problem to have!
Back to the chair that’s cute, but didn’t quite do it for the dressing table…
This would be cute in an entry as a landing spot for your coat and purse, don’t you think?
After the French Linen, I sanded a little here and there and dry-brushed it with a bit of white.
Ooh how about in a bathroom with a stack of fluffy white towels on it? Can you see it?

Hope you liked my chool.
I’ll be back on Tuesday sharing how I updated this estate sale find:
