I found this like-new wooden stool at Goodwill San Antonio for just 3.99. I was using an old folding chair at my craft desk, so I snatched this up, knowing it would make for a fun project AND comfortable seating. With some Project Foam and fabric from P&B Textiles I took my plain wood stool from blah to wow!


Step one: Sand the legs of the stool lightly, then paint them. I used DecoArt’s metallic paint.

Step two: Trace the top of the stool onto the Project Foam and cut it out. Hot glue the foam to the stool top to hold it in place, and cover it with the fabric. Staple the fabric onto the stool top and trim off the excess.

Step three: Cut strips of fabric to fit the horizontal dowels on the stool. Use Mod Podge to adhere the fabric.

Step four: Cut pieces of metal to wrap around the ends of the fabric. I used super glue and held the pieces in place with tape while I waited for the glue to dry.

I just love the beautiful fabric, and the contrast of the soft fabric design with the hard metal is exactly what I wanted. I love Project Foam for my cushion projects because it is comfortable and holds it’s shape. If only the rest of my craft room was as pretty as my new stool!
