Does anybody remember this vanity stool that I blogged about after our trip to Palm Springs three years ago?


If you do remember – good memory – and thanks for reading!

To catch everyone else up, I bought that vanity stool during a weekend trip to Palm Springs in 2012 and I thought I’d recover it right away.  Of course, I didn’t end up recovering it after all.

Then, about two years ago, the designer, Grant K. Gibson very kindly gave me a remnant of Madeline Weinrib fabric.  Grant is just the nicest and it was so very sweet of him to do.  I treasure the fabric and his generosity so much.



However, both the vanity stool and fabric sat unused for years.

Fast forward to last week, the fabric and the vanity met in a wonderful union.  I believe my two loves make quite the pair.


They sit proudly together in Josie’s room and they act as the perfect perch to sit on .  About one evening a week (or realistically every other week), before bed time, we all go sit together in Josie’s room and read books as a family.  It’s a very special time and I’m so glad we now get to do that in style. 🙂


Grace was with me while I was attempting to take a good shot of the room; I’m very much still learning how to take a good photo.  While she was laying on the floor, I realized that the bloomers I had her in match the decor – such a happy accident!


Also, the little bundle of complete joy turned seven months this past Saturday.

    Josie’s room would not be half as lovely w/out that bench; Great job w/ fabric!!! And Gracie’s ruffles add just the right “pop”! xd

    The stool is fantastic and the story behind is great! Looks perfect in Grace’s room!
