The wood was a very dirty yellow colour, I rubbed it all down and gave it a light coat of white paint, when it was dry I gave it a rub over with light sandpaper. This revealed some of the original yellow paint underneath and also gave the stool a distressed appearance. Once I was happy with the appearance I rubbed in some Annie Sloan clear wax to protect.
I covered the seat in a lovely material remnant purchased from my good friend Helen's ETSY Shop, isn't it just the perfect match !
