Bar Stool Makeover

I found this bar stool at the DI for $3! My wonderful hubby sanded it down (since it was WAY too cold outside for me).

After it was all sanded, I unscrewed the top because I wanted to make it into a cushion.

I took some brown paint...

And painted it!!

I just used pillow stuffing, wrapped some fabric around it- and nailed some furniture tacks into the bottom of the seat! It doesn't matter how messy it looks, because you won't see it.

Here is what it looked like after I re-attached the seat top.

I decided to sand down the legs a little to look more shabby chic.

The final product:



  1. I love can "fix" anything.


  2. Amazing! How did you do that. My brain could never see the possibilities! The other HOLLY at lifelaughlatte

  3. I love it! It's so cute. Stopping by from SITS. Also gonna follow if I may....
