DYI ~ How I Re-Upholstered My Vanity Stool

How I Re-Upholstered My Vanity Stool
I've decided to give my makeup room/office/girl cave an overhaul for the new year.  The first thing I did was purchase a new vanity (my old one was falling apart). I needed cherry or mahogany to match my office furniture sitting on the other side of my room.

 I found this one on Craigslist for $100 and it was in perfect condition. After that was done, my next task was  re-upholstering the vanity stool. Lastly, I am going to re-upholstering the round ottoman that sits in the center of my room (I use this for meditating) and add a box valance window treatment using the same fabric.

I bought seven yards of this brocade fabric from the garment district downtown Los Angeles.  I got a very good deal.  Brocade is very expensive because it's used mainly used for drapery and fancy bedding.  There was 9 yards at 60" width left on the roll, he gave it to me for $8 a yard, marked down from $25 a yard.  Stay tuned for more DYI projects and the completion/tour of my makeup room!
