old bar stool

I got this ugly old bar stool at D.I. for $3. It was kind of hard to vision it ever being cute, but I decided to give it a try. It ended up being a fast and easy project. Here's what I did:

  • Cut 3 inches off the legs so it was the perfect height for my bar (my husband did this) 
  • Painted it white
  • Covered the seat with cute fabric- I used staples and hot glue to get it to fold under tight
  • Distressed the edges with sand paper
  • Hot glued felt to the bottoms so it won't scratch the floor
