So I bought this stool last year at a garage sale for $2. Yes, I couldn't believe it either... only $2! It was really sturdy and really heavy.
I ripped off the carpet that was on it.
And decided to change it out to a round seat, and make it a bigger seat. So my husband cut a circle out of plywood and screwed it to the base. I spray primed the metal base.
My new favorite color was added to bring some life to my junk room... aqua! I spray painted the legs with Rustoleum Seaside.
The hardest part of the whole process was finding foam to fit. I couldn't find a round big enough. So I bought a square piece from Hobby Lobby that was 21" x 21" and 3" thick. I laid the stool on top of the foam and used a pen to draw a line 1" out from the plywood base. Then I used scissors to cut the circle out... haphazardly. It wasn't that easy 😬
I found some beautiful, bright colored fabric in my junk room color theme... red, aqua, and yellow at our local quilt shop and covered the stool.
The thrill of finding a great piece at a great price is so awesome! But when you actually get to see the transformation come alive... it's very exciting!
