Reupholstered Stool by Amy & Chris

My friend was getting rid of a lot of furniture and she gave me a stool for free! I knew I could redo and use it in some way. It has been sitting in our garage for months because life has been so crazy, but I finally decided its time to complete the project.


The top cushion was not attached so I threw it away and started from scratch. I primed the stool and then painted.
I then started the put the top of the stool together. I found a small piece of wood at Home Depot, I placed the foam on top and then the fabric. Once everything was stapled, I attached the decorative nails around the border of the cushion. The final step was to nail the cushion to the stool.


The total cost of this project was around $20.
Thanks for stopping by I hope you enjoy!
