More Cottage Shabby Chic

Continuing from Yesterdays Update of my daughters Shabby Chic Bedroom is a Piano Stool
It was bought from a Sunday Outing (Carboot!)
It had seen better days
No top and had been warped and  Knocked out of square
So a little DIY  and More of the Vintage Music Paper,
To finish the stool We topped it with some Pretty Vintage Curtain Fabric
 also Found at a Sunday Outing (Love a Carboot!)
What do you think ?!

From This ......

 Had to sand the whole Body and top remove any stray nails
and Straighten the leg Squaring up the Body

 Also Decided to seal up the fold down front of the draw as didn't think we would need this and the whole thing would work better as a draw
 A little Glue and some chipboard Pieces and everything was fixed
I also went across the joints with filler and sand paper to smooth Flat

So Voila This is the Finished Stool
 Wrapped in Vintage Music Paper Pieces
Each Handcut and Wrapped
 Topped with a Pretty Cottage Floral Fabric
 And the Draw Lined with a Large Thick Paper Vintage Map

 I reused the Original Draw Pull
Do you like The Scallop cut design on the Paper
Liked this as a Join Looked Prettier Than Flat edges
 No sign of the fold down front :-)

All Finished with a Pale Shabby Chic White Wash to Blend and Finish The whole Look
One Very Happy Girl!!
