quick and simple stool recover

1 comment
I was given this awesome stool from a friend. It sat in our spare room and I started using it as my sewing stool. It was a perfect height for me to sit and use my sewing machine.


The fabric is was already covered in wasn't exactly modern or fitted with our house decor. 
A quick trip to spotlight and to the cotton canvas area I spotted this fabric. It was $11.99 metre and I brought just over 1/2 metre $6.83.


The hardest part to recovering this was removing the screws that attached the legs to the bottom of the seat. I needed Mr B to remove these for me.



I just used enough fabric to cover the seat and folded it over a few inches so it wouldn't fray. 


I used the staple gun (with thankfully just enough staples for me to finish this project) 


I have a good amount of fabric left over from this project.



Once I got the seat back on it looked like a brand new stool.


Loving the new stool fabric! Such an improvement from the original pink swirls.
