Shabby little stool~

I've had this little stool for about 27 years now.... I actually remember the day I bought it at a local thrift store-- I'm nutty like that. It was looking a little shabby, and not in a good way~Sooooooo I gave it a new coat of paint, and I made a little tufted top using some vintage fabric and mother of pearl buttons... and of course some ruffles for good measure. Now its shabby in a good way~I've linked to Debbiedoos.

Love your stool. The tufts are great! Thank you for the advice on my table. I did throw away the top, but I look forward to the next problem project in which I can try your solution.
