Do you have any favorite DIY’ers that you follow? Well I do and she posted this really awesome makeover that got me to thinking….
Now on to my version of her makeover project.
We’ve had this stool for ages. This is how it looked just a few weeks ago.
Yes it’s sad looking. And, in case you are wondering, that is an old pair of shorts covering it. But it gets better. Or possibly worse, depending on how you look at it.
I used Poly Foam and just planned on cutting it down to size. They do make foam in a round shape but I liked the thickness of this one.
I removed the old pair of shorts and underneath was a toilet seat cover. I had used it to cover the chair because it had elastic that kind of kept it held onto the stool. Note the words…kind of. 😉
It gets better!
I removed the toilet seat cover and this is the original cushion. It’s all cracked and awful looking.
I flipped it over to see how the cushion was attached.
It had a bunch of staples holding it down so I took a flathead screwdriver and some pliers and got to work removing them.
I then spray painted the legs to prime them.
Then I added a lovely gold to the legs.
I am totally in love with how it turned out!!
What cool things are you working on?
Stay awesome!! ~lisa
