Stool Makeover

I didn't need this stool at all. I have no place to put it. But when I was making a trip through a local flea market, it caught my eye. And it was priced at only $6. Hello stool, nice to meet you. You are coming home with me.

The lines on this little stool are so cute. However, the hard as wood seat is not comfortable at all. No worries, I gave this stool a quick little makeover to make it uber-chic. First I cut out a piece of 1" foam for the seat to make it comfortable to sit on. After all, it is a stool and should be comfy.

Then I used a piece of scrap fabric to cover the foam. Just use a stapler to fasten the fabric to the bottom of the seat. Trim the excess fabric away.

This stool is much cuter already, but still not complete. I spray painted the legs a rich emerald green for that extra something-something. Dad, I know you hate green, but give this a chance.

And look at this stool now.


Want to know how much this mini makeover cost? $6. Just the price of the stool. I already had the foam, fabric, and spray paint. Now I just need to find a place for this little stool. Anybody need a stool?
