Chinoiserie Stool DIY
Above is Gump's new version of its Palace Stool in black lacquer with an aqua blue seat. It is available for $298.00 plus shipping. I love the Chinoiserie styling and colors, but I think the polyester fabric is a bit tacky. I would opt instead for the Cindy Crawford Collection for JCPenney Trellis Stool for $99.99. I bought one and love it-it is very well made. With a $5.00 can of black paint and a great silk or other high end remnant, you will have an even nicer and much cheaper Chinoiserie piece. But I do love the black and aqua color combination. A great idea to borrow and do your own better version.
