The one thing it had going for it was the hammered bronze finish on the metal.
So with a couple of spare hours (avoiding my really long to do list), I decided to do a quick redo. After removing the woven cover, which took longer than I thought since I had to remove several dozen staples and about a hundred little nails since each strip was held in place by a small nail on either end.
Looks like the stool was originally $99.00 purchased for $39.99
Please disregard the gross carpet. We hope to replace the flooring after in the new year.
0.00 fabric leftovers from the $5 chair project
0.00 batting leftovers from the $5 chair project and other crafty crafts
$0.00 Total cost (my favorite price!)
Added bonus, we now have another seat in the living room for our big Christmas Eve party which means one less person will have to sit on the floor.
I have included this stool in The DIY Show Off Surpirse Party hightlighting Home Accents. Want inspiration? Make sure to visit the site.
