I bought this vintage gold metal faux bamboo vanity stool a few years ago and just recently got around to recovering it. Up until now I just threw a sheepskin rug over it and hid it in a room that we rarely used. The upholstery was in good condition but it was just kind of “blah” so I wanted something more fun. Here is a “before” photo:
For the first time ever I have a designated vanity in our bedroom so I decided to go with a fabric that I bought a few years ago that I’d been saving for a special project. The fabric is called Aurora Ikat Multi and it was a bit of a splurge, which is why I hadn’t used it yet.
I was pretty lazy for this project and all I did was remove the seat from the frame and staple the new fabric over the old fabric with a staple gun. I just didn’t feel like removing the old fabric and foam (I was 36 weeks pregnant when I did this so that’s my excuse for cutting corners), but it seems to have turned out just fine. Once I stapled on the new fabric I attached the seat back to the frame…et voila! I don’t know why it took me forever to tackle this project, but I’m so glad I finally decided to do it. I’ll share my vanity area in a post soon!
