Dining Chair into Vanity Chair

This is probably the easiest thing I've done in a long time and yet it's one of my favorites.   I cut the top of a chair off.  I know, it's mind blowing isn't it ;)   Why? I needed a chair for my vanity because vanities sell better with a chair and all I had was this one.

The carved detail reminds me of a pineapple and it just did not go with the style and chippyness of the vanity.  I like the detail but not for this piece.  I had everything sitting outside taking these photos and the idea occurred to me.  Cut off the pineapple.  

I laid it on my Chop saw and chopped the top off.  Now it looks like a vanity stool, coordinates better with the vanity and isn't matchy matchy.  Perfect.  I touched up the cut end with paint and done.  

It's the little things sometimes.  The vanity is painted with Milk Paint.  Shutter Gray on the body and Grain Sack on the drawers.  

Hope you have a great week!
