Rice Sack Stool

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this stool when I saw it at an estate sale.



Something simple, comfortable, and monochromatic.

Actually, both the stool, and the rice sack are from the same sale.  The stool was pretty sad, and everyone stepped over it.  Poor thing.




I applied multiple layers of paint, in various shades of grey, followed by a bit of distressing.




The icky fabric was removed, and replaced with fresh padding, and a section of the rice sack.




A forlorn stool, given another chance.

That turned out so cute! I love how fresh it is now. You were really able to see past its flaws when you got it.

How cool! I love how the rice print fits on the stool seat, and the gray you chose is perfect. Now, I want a rice stool...wish you were closer.

Love the stool Rosemary! Love that you used gray paint and then distressed. I think the finish really plays well with the rice sack. You are always surprising me.
