Simple Stool Redo

Simple Stool Redo

My Grandma wanted me to redo this stool for her bathroom. She said that I could do any color that I wanted but her colors were mostly yellows and green. I opted for brighter colors and I’m pretty sure she will love it no matter what colors they are! She’s cool like that :)

If you are looking to reupholster something, a little stool like this is a great place to start!

This stool was baaaadddd. As in, it looked awful.


I swear that seat was hard as a brick.


This is what the seat looked like underneath. I might should have opted to cut a new board. But, I didn’t. I’m embarrassed to say I just used the existing, moldy one.


I grabbed some fluffy batting and recovered around the stool. Just staple all the way around and then cut off the excess.


I then got my fabric and pulled and stapled all the way around. You can see that it almost has a pleated look. I left it looking like this because who is going to look under a stool? If you do, you are weird… just sayin’.


And here she is all beautified and bright!


She looks much cushier now. I’m sure my Grandma’s bottom will thank me for the extra cushion!


Don’t be afraid of a little reupholstering! It’s pretty simple for simple little stools like this.

Thanks for dropping in :)
