Kitchen Stool makeover

Last weeks thrift store haul proved to be a huge success! I knew this old dated kitchen stool was a diamond in the rough! Just look at her now…

1. Start off by removing the two fabric covered sections of the chair leaving behind only the metal frame. Now you’re ready to spray paint!

2. Time to recover the seat cushions! I found this beautiful oil cloth at Material Girls Quilt Shop. I only needed 1/2 a yard.  I used spray adhesive to help keep the fabric in place.

3.  Cut slits every 2″ to help pull the fabric over the curved edges easily.Hot glue the fabric on. I kept the existing old fabric and padding on becasue this thing was OLD and the fabric was stuck to the padding.

4. When you are done recovering it’s time to put them back onto the metal frame!

I love her!The End!

    Great color combination, Becca! Oil cloth is such a great choice. I recovered all of my dining chairs in vinyl damask, but it was too thin so they are starting to give. Oil cloth is great for those of us with kids {or messy crafts!}
