Curb Shopped Vintage Footstool Redo

My husband was out working one day and seen this bench setting out on a curb. He brought it home to me and I was ecstatic!

I love vintage furniture and I love restoring it. I knew what I was going to do right away.

The frame on this stool is amazing. I didn’t have to do one thing to the finish.

It was solid and clean! So I just redid the upholstery. I removed the leather that was torn and added a thin fresh padding to the top. I bought white fur from Joanns and stapled it on.

I just love it! I put it in my walk-in closet. It was such a dramatic transformation. You can find so many cool things in the trash!

Furniture Redo Curb Shopped Antique Dresser Restoration Shabby Chic

Let’s talk about this antique dresser. I curb shopped it…Yes, someone threw it away! My husband thought I was crazy when I said; “Stop, Let’s get that!” I seen the potential and had to have it! We put it in the Jeep, I remember it barely fit, It was very beat up and had country blue painted drawer fronts and white handles. It was covered in nail polish among other things. I had a heck of a time cleaning it. I also had to peel kids Snow White wallpaper from inside the drawers that someone used as drawer liner. I painted it with chalk paint then I bought new handles from Hobby Lobby and BOOM! It was just how I envisioned it when I seen it on the curb. It’s one of my favorite pieces.
