The Power of Fabric

Hey everyone!  I hope you had a family filled and fun Thanksgiving.  I sure did.  I am so grateful for so many things, including you, my loyal readers! I am jumping for joy right now.  I upholstered a vanity stool I found at an estate sale for $10, and I am so pleased with how it turned out.

Here is the before:

It was old, dirty and had fabric that had seen better days.  But, I had been wanting a stool for my daughter’s vanity, so for $10 I bought it.

Here is the after:

Isn’t it amazing what a difference a fabric makeover can make? I can’t wait to see how it looks in my daughter’s room. I love re-uphostering things with good bones.  It is so affordable and you can customize it with any fabric you set your sights on.  I had been eyeing this vanity stool at Pottery Barn Kids, but I felt like the fabric and color choices were kind of boring.  So glad I went the DIY route!

What do you think? Have you ever reupholstered anything?


  1. Wow, Jennifer, you did such a great job! I love the colors and pattern! If you ever have the chance i would love a tutorial on reupholstering or a good link to one. Beautiful work!:-)
