Facelift for a Tiny Stool

It all started with some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. 

So I had been seeing ASCP all over the web on blogs and Pinterest and I was wondering what all of the fuss was about.  After we moved to Philly and I had some time on my hands I thought I would search out a shop that sells ASCP and try it for myself. All of the choices of colors were a little overwhelming so I decided to
grab a quart of Duck Egg and see what happened.

I had the paint, the clear wax and the dark wax and now all I needed was something to put them on...
For this I would visit a thrift shop and look for anything cheap that was made out of wood that I could paint.

That's when this little beauty entered my life.  Boy does she need some lovin.  I figured for a whopping $3 what could I lose.

I carefully removed the upholstery nails and ripped off the horrible fabric.  I cracked open the can of Duck Egg Blue and painted only the bottom because I decided to purchase a cute chevron fabric to reupholster the top.  
This is what I had at the end of the experiment.  Not too shabby! 
I think I've just been bit by the chalk paint bug.  What can I paint next?
