vintage piano stool makeover

First up, is a vintage piano stool I updated and repurposed.

It has been in my family for at least 100 years, and was passed down from my great grandmother.

It sat in storage for a long time, and when I did a closet clean out recently, I wanted a place to sit to put on shoes, and thought it would be the perfect size.

You can see all the details of the project here
