|Making Guardians of the Galaxy furniture|
My upcycle pieces just happen. We'll be at a car boot and I'll see something and think - oh that would be fab with a Spider-man cover or made into superhero shelving or even Harry Potter's Monster book of monsters (oh yes, all 3 are projects in progress.....). But this piece - I wasn't even around for - my wonderful partner came home with it:
|Tatty old stool crying out to by Marvellous again|
I took off the material, legs and the lid and covered the main section of the stool with the retro material. I used my faithful Mod Podge and this covered it very nicely. The edging around the top were glued and the edging around the bottom were stapled.
|Striped back ready for the Mod Podge|
|Quick and simple way to recover an old stool|
|Preparing my drying area|
|Getting ready to transform this dated old lid into GOTG theme|
The lid has button indents on and I had no plans to try and pull any of those out whatsoever and as I didn't want them showing through I used wadding to cover them and placed the material on top.

Looks rather lovely doesn't it.
