You know I’m a huge fan of grain sack and everything related to stripes. Do you remember the little footstool redo? And the wooden tray makeover? So when I bought this old-fashioned stool I had a quite clear idea what to do with it.
It had great bones but the fabric and the elastic straps we a bit ugh and decided to remove everything.
I took everything out and left it to the bones. I painted the legs white with my fav DIY chalkpaint
I stapled some new straps very tight and then I realized I had done the wrong way. They must cross up and down each other for better results. I unstapled one side of three of them to cross.
Now it was time to upholster it. I bought a 4 cm piece of medium density foam, and some batting for the top and stapled them in place.
I added some white plain fabric I had on hand, and decided to transfer some lettering to it. You can have the full tutorial here, it’s fast and easy! Once it was done, I took some tape and paint to make the stripes.
What a difference some paint and fabric can make, don’t you think? Do you like grain sack fabric as well?
