lpalta, that stool is awesome! I love it in it's chippy state. The feet are intriquing. Are they claws? I'd love to see a close up... Personally, I'd leave it black, at least until after Halloween! It's perfect for a spooky vignette.

I have a close up of a foot in my Webshots Craft album. The tip of the foot screws on and each claw is holding a round glass ball. It looks as if the stool has been varnished and the varnish is peeling. I am guessing the wood is walnut.

It's an old piano or organ stool...likely mahogany....and in the right place worth a good bit if it hasn't been painted and the turn around thingey works...

I'd leave it as is for now as sure looks great for Halloween! Library might have antique books in reference or check out section or try finding it on the Web. I have a wrought iron 1 that swivels but with a square top & very heavy, got at yard sale for $15. & I love it not anywhere as nice as yours, I love the balls in the feet. Jan

Great find! Don't know what to tell you to do with it either, but I love it. I always bring things home and have no clue what I'll do with them, but you know when you see someting like that that you have to have it!

I'm sure you'll get ideas here. Thanks for sharing!

Went to a Fire Dept Auction this summer, they had an old church organ which did not sell, the stool went with it. I offered a price for the stool, then the bidding started. I got it for approx 25.00 It is just sitting here, thought I might put a fern on top. Looks old house.

I wouldn't do anything to it, it's perfect the way it is. I agree with the fern ... either that or use it as a small end table next to a chair or sofa?

I have a piano stool that looks exactly the same. My mother did a great job in refinishing it. It's an heirloom to me. The last time I checked mine was worth about $75.

Enjoy

I had one in my shop last yr. Mine was missing the seat. I painted it and set a plant on it and sold it right off...Love yours...

Oh I love her! Used to have one just like her. Now I have a male named Tom because he looks just like the cat on Tom & Jerry.

Oh wait, you're talking about the stool.
