A French-Style Stool Redo

I discovered this ugly little stool while thrifting.  It had been newly recovered and then discarded.

Not sure what era it’s from, but it was in need of an update.
I made a dark charcoal chalk paint and gave her 2 coats.  Just to jazz her up a bit I stamped her with the same paint.
Here she is:

This is not staying in my home.  It is not going to the store.  Stay tuned.
