You may or may not remember this stool that I posted here a few months back.
I had every intention of getting busy on it right away, but I didn't account for the
So not only did I finally finish this little stool, but this also marks the start of my baby room redo since I am planning on putting this in there.(more on that next week!)
Here she is.
I started by removing 4,982 nails from the cushion and such. I then cleaned it up, sanded it a little and covered it in paint.
A medium rare distressing was then applied and some light glazing to the nooks to complete the look.
Then came the cushion... I had no idea what I was doing so the whole tutorial thing is out. Although if you are lucky enough to come across a bench/stool like this and also have no idea how to put a new seat in, feel free to email me! I did learn a few things. The problem is that unlike when you recover a seat cushion on a chair, this has no board to attach the fabric to. You have to just nail it straight to the frame.
So it was a bit of a challenge, but after trying a few things then I got the hang of it.
So there you have it. My old fashioned, estate sale find... all redone! I am very pleased with how it turned out and can't wait to see how the rest of the room ends up as well.
Now if only I could finish my laundry pile. Have I said that before?
