Hello, happy Tuesday! I’m at it again…coming up with inspiration from simply deep cleaning my bedroom. It’s amazing how many dust bunnies can hide under the bed…geez, as in sneeze! I have never been a big fan of dust bunnies or dirt for that matter. In fact, I’m such a freak; I won’t lay my purse down on any ground, even in my own home. I also don’t like laying my purse on a chair or out visible in the room. I love beautiful handbags, but I don’t think they work as an interior design element.
This silly little blue stool has had a home next to my bed to hold my purse for a very long time. It took me cleaning out the bunnies to see it had far more potential than I was utilizing. So, here you have it; my little one hour project to dress up the stool, using fabric and trim that I already had on hand.
The directions are at the bottom of this post. You can also find the chair slipcover directions by clicking this link.Step 1: Place the stool upside down on two layers of thick batting. Cut the batting to the shape of the top of the stool.
Step 2: Place the batting and the stool on top of the fabric. Cut the fabric about 3inches larger than the stool.
Step 3: Working with the stool upside down on top of the cut fabric and batting, start to secure the fabric to the underside of the stool with a staple gun. Wear protective glasses always. I roll the fabric so it has a finished underside. Start by securing four sides first and then work yourself around the stool.
Step 4: Place the nail heads where you want to have button tucks. Once you have them in the pattern you want, hammer them into the top of the stool.
Step 5: Secure the trim to the edge of the upholstered stool. I use both hot glue and staples. I use the staples about every 6 inches. Turn the stool over on its feet and you’re done.
LOVE this post! SO cute!
