Can we reflect for a moment on my love for chenille?
My vintage home decor tastes are constantly changing from nautical to industrial to cottage and back again but through all styles, chenille remains constant. Why? I don’t know. It’s just a little dose of granny whimsy usually in the form of a blanket.
When I found this yellow chenille rug a few weeks back, I knew it would be right at home in the cottage-style bathroom we finished last winter.
It is thin and worn and some of the frayed edges are long gone but I love it just the same. Sigh.
And that stool? That was a quick little milk paint makeover. The worn finish on the top matches the vanity almost perfectly. Happy accident!
It is simply constructed of plywood.
The first coat of paint was done in lucketts green on the top and base.
Then the wax puck made an appearance again between layers of paint…
The top was painted with some leftover ironstone and the base with leftover shutter gray. A little bit of furniture wax and the stool was finished!
A couple of winners! Am I alone in my adoration of vintage chenille?
