Last year there was a furniture store that was going out of business. As soon as I spied this reproduction Louis XVI stool I could not get it paid for fast enough. It was the perfect size for my bathroom vanity.
The stool was loaded up with the chair and ottoman to receive a slipcover. This photo is a good actual representation of the pale green damask fabric that it is upholstered in as well as the soft gold finish on the wood.
Even though I love the fabric I have had far too many near accidents involving foundation and lipstick and thought it would benefit from a washable slipcover to avoid a permanent stain.
Again I had thought about covering it myself but the stool also has several curves. In addition, my seamstress had said that there would be tons of leftover fabric from the chair and ottoman.
I had requested ballet ties but it was a bit much for Mr. Décor.
Since I share a bathroom with him I merely switched the look to a simple bow.
