A wood maintenance kit is used to bring the homeowner's vanity table back to life. If you have a really nice piece of antique furniture, it's a good idea to give it a little face-lift every couple of years. A custom stool for the vanity table is made from preforged fencing material that was purchased at an industrial metal supply store. The metal pieces are sanded, then welded together. The same faux-finish technique used to give the headboard an aged look is also used on the stool (click on Headboard Project
photo). A wooden seat is made for the stool and upholstered in a patterned fabric that matches the wall color. Wrought-iron is very typical of Spanish-colonial design and the elegance of the stool works perfectly with the femininity of the art-deco vanity table. A large armoire (not shown) conceals the TV and provides extra storage.
