Vintage Foot Stool Makeover: Before and After

I am having a small obsession with mini makeover these past few weeks. I have been finding some amazing vintage items and quickly thinking of ways I can update them to fit our new home. Living in the apartment lifestyle, you lose the chance to be able to garden. I LOVE flowers and fortunately have found other ways to be surrounded by them.
I found this foot stool in an antique shop for $15. I used a new type of chalk paint in color "serene" and one piece of sanding paper for a little smoothing of all the old paint. With a small paint brush and some paint, I got to work.
