DIY Dressing Table Stool

Turn your bedroom into a boudoir with a stylish dressing table, stool & a vanity mirror.  Dressing table stool is a superb addition for the dressing table and is perfect to sit on and make yourself pretty. 

 A while back we visited a vintage store and were given this dressing table stool with no foam for free. 

These are the things you’ll need to do this project: stool, foam/pillow, paint (for the stool if it needs painting), bullion fringe trimming, hot glue gun or staple gun, fabric and a pair of scissors.

  • Sand down the stool using sand paper, be-careful not to destroy any intriguing details on the stool then paint it using your favourite oil paint. 
  • Once the paint has dried unscrew the top of the stool if that is possible otherwise do as we did. 
  • On a flat surface place the fabric & pillow or foam then turn the stool upside down such that the top of the stool lays on them.
  • Use a hot glue gun or staple gun to glue/pin the fabric & pillow in place. In our case we had to use the hot glue gun as the wood was too hard for the staples to go through.
  • Once that is done use a pair of scissors to cut out any excess fabric. Staple or glue the bullion fringe trimming around the chair. This will help cover any imperfection on the stool and create a stylish finish.
  • This stool is just perfect as it fits underneath the dressing table when not in use therefore maximizing space in the bedroom.
