#Marvel Upcycled Stool - Spider-man is slowly taking over the house!

I am rather pleased with how this stool turned out!  I'm having a bit of a 'mare with my spray paints at the moment - well my chalkboard paint to be precise and it's spitting and flicking at me at every opportunity, so I've sort of lost the will with these projects............ until today!

My Old Freebie Stool
From a freecycle page I obtained this lovely dated old kitchen stool and in the shed it went until I knew what I was going to do with it.  Yes, I obtain pieces with no clue what I'm doing.

B&Q Bargains
Then, to my delight B&Q where having a sale on their spray paints - had no idea this was happening as I went in for something completely different - grass seed I think!  Picked up Hulk Green colour, Captain America and Spider-man blues and a brown and red - just because.

And believe it or not those two steps were the easy ones!  Finding a piece of fabric was the most difficult!  I don't usually have this problem and usually have fat quarts or random pieces at home, but the cupboard was bare!  I spent the next couple of weeks watching various pieces on eBay, but they were going for way too much for me.

Finally, a lovely spidey piece came up (was actually aiming for Captain America as I'd painted the stool by now - but never mind - spider-man is slowly taking over my house)!  So I received the piece - only to find I hadn't measured the seat correctly and the piece was too small!!  Whilst standing in the hall cursing myself I notice a perfect piece hanging over the CD unit (told you, Spider-man is everywhere).  So I used that!

Armed with my staple gun I re-covered the seat and placed it back on the stool and it got the seal of approval from the little man.

My only regret is I didn't give it a bit of padding.  After creating the pin board I still had some wadding left over which would have been perfect - but hey, if we ever (not likely) get bored of Spidey I'll keep that in mind when I recover it again.

Turned out OK don't you think?


  1. I don't know how you do it. Amazing results every time! I wouldn't have seen any hope for that stool but you've made it look fabulous. x

    1. Thanks Rebecca, sometimes I seem to just like a challenge!
