Whether it's a garden, a crafts project or any decorating ideas, here's the place to post them. I'm not crafty, can't sew at all, but decided to recover an art deco old dressing table stool that I had purchased some time ago at a consignment shop in St Louis.

The curved wood piece started out silver, with an old gold finish showing in spots. Then I painted it with a chrome paint (was trying for a silver effect). That didn't look so hot. Then I painted it gloss white and upholstered the seat with a phony black leather (naugahyde).

I got the idea from a sheet set I purchased from Crate & Barrel, the Marimekko pattern. I bought a king sized sham and used the top fabric to upholster the seat. It wasn't heavy duty enough, so I bought a clear plastic material to cover. Here's the pic, why I haven't been posting too much the last few days.
