DIY: Melinda’s Custom Counter Stools


My mom, who is full of creative ideas, took some run of the mill counter stools from target and customized them.  She started with this:

Then, she sanded, primed, and painted the metal parts…

While she waited for those to dry, she painted a square of canvas with acrylic paint (she did a couple different ones)…

Then, using a staple gun, she attached the canvas smoothly over the existing seat cover…

Then she reassembled the stools, and voila!  Custom counter stools, any way you like ‘em.  You don’t have to paint your own fabric; you could purchase printed upholstery fabric and use that instead.

Are you inspired?  Doesn’t it make you want to transform something boring into something FRILLING?
