More Master Bedroom Updates

I have made a couple updates to our master bedroom.

I received the dressing table stool in this post for free from a  family friend but I just couldn't figure out how to make it work. I wonder if I could do something with it now that I have my sewing machine but regardless I found the below stool at Diversity Thrift and snatched it up for $15.

I used the same yellow Garden Ridge fabric  from my bedroom pillow to cover the top.

For the paint, I sanded the entire stool, then painted one thin coat of Martha Stewart Living Metallic Paint in Vintage Gold. (I also used this on Camille's Tutu table). After drying, I took sandpaper and gently went over the painted stool.

I also found some great fabric on clearance at Garden Ridge...2 yards for $3! I really liked it better than the other two I put on the bench at the end of our bed. Read about those two here and here. It is sorta comical but the fabric from Garden Ridge is so cheap...I can change it out every month or two. ;) I used some of the extra fabric to make a pillow using the previous pillow form.

And my Love of Jesus Thrift find, made its way to the top of my dresser.

So we have come along way from this before picture when we moved in.....

Well I guess some things don't change, Cougar still loves sleeping on our bed and  I didn't bother moving her when I took this new picture. I had forgotten she was in my before shot from 2+ years ago as well!
