Remember those 9 stools and benches piled in my garage? Well, I just finished one. I wanted to mix it up a bit with the upholstery.
You can see the original upholstery peeking through here.
I was in such a hurry to get at this, that I didn't take an absolute before pic. I'd already started attaching the grainsack to the top, and painted the legs a blue/grey.
The entire project consisted of paint, sissors, hot glue, a grainsack fragment, and upholstery webbing. After securing the grainsack to the top, I hotglued the grainsack right over the original cording and wrapped the side of the stool with webbing.
I knew the webbing would be an exact fit width wise. I just had to cut a length long enough to wrap around, with a slight overlap.
I chose a blue/grey for the legs to compliment the stripe on the grainsack.
I wanted more character and texture, and I think I got it.
I'll be mixing it up again. I have a multitude of combination possibilities for the rest of my stash. I'm pondering one right now.
