shower curtain stool makeover

a friend gave me this cute stool that was in great need of a makeover.
i went through my fabric stash and decided to recover it in this gorgeous bright
floral Cath Kidston shower curtain fabric!
i love how vibrant the roses are.
i also gave it a few coats of white paint and a sand.
to get a watered down white washed look,
i just don't stir the paint as well.
and this is the result.
i made a wreath using some of this shower curtain last year. you can see it here.
i was also given this print, which looks so much like an original
oil painting. all it needed was a couple of coats of white paint to freshen it up.
the roses stand out alot more now.
stool before....
print before....
i think both pieces fit in well in my laundry for now :)
