Duck Egg Piano Stool

I got this cute piano stool a few months ago, and it looked like this...
I think it was the pretty shape of the legs that drew me to it.
I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg, and waxed it with clear and brown wax after lightly distressing it.  I reupholstered the top with some beige linen and then using a Graphics Fairy graphic I transferred it onto the Fabric using 'Citrasolve', you can see a  tutorial here on 'You Tube' from Gail Schmidt At The Shabby Cottage Studio.  Afterwards I lined the inside with old sheet music, I thought that would be a novel idea for a 'piano' stool!

Such an improvement on the original piece - I love Duck Egg its such a lovely soft shade.
I'm mixing up some Provence & Old White at the moment for a chest of drawers, I am hoping to share very soon.
Bye for now
