Every now and then I recycle a dated old piece of furniture (usually a stool) with a spray of paint or a geeky new piece of fabric and turn it into something Marvellous... so over the past 4 months I've been reupholstering this old
|Bit dated and tired wouldn't you agree?|
I usually quite enjoy stripping back the furniture. There is usually a sense of satisfaction getting rid of the old, but this one, this was a two man job. By that read "I had to get my partner to do most of the work". The lid and lid fabric came off fine. It was the base that was the b****! Staples everywhere! After several knives, stable removers and swearing later, we managed to get the last of the stables out and the unit was back to basic.
|Still looking rather ugly!|
|Rather pleased with how snug this fits|
|Base material compliments the new lid rather nicely I feel|
This was not an easy piece of furniture to decorate, but then they never are so I don't know what fantasy I live out when I've created one of these!!
I finally tackled the lid and as I'd hoped it didn't take too long and wasn't too difficult to do. I'd kept the original green under cover from the lid and put this back on and I think I pulled that off rather nicely.
|Bit too much fabric there?!|
|Preparing the final stage!|
|Little bit in love with this!|
Joint effort again this time, actually, it wasn't. I did none of this so my wonderful partner finished off my stool for me and we all love it so much, it now lives pride of place in our dining room... filled with toys!
Wouldn't have it any other way.

So what do you think? I am so in love with this fabric!!
