We have here a couple of not too pretty, old camp stools. I think its time they received a makeover.
Of course I'm going to do this the super lazy and easy way just like when I recovered Slash's chair. So first I pried off the ratty old covers with a screwdriver. A butter knife would work just as well.
Hey, speaking of Slash, this sweet kitty wants to help out.
Ah, much better with those horrid covers removed.
Now it's time to shine up that dried out wood!
I use a bit of Pledge extra moisturizing. Ok, I use A LOT of it actually.
While I let the wood dry I ran inside to cut out the fabric. Hum, might need to iron it too.
I used the old ratty cover as a pattern and just sort of cut around it. Then it was off to the the sewing machine to sew up the edges. Sorry, I forgot to get photos of me wrestling with the sewing machine beastie. Ya know, I was rushing along with this project, trying to get it done before dark and forgot to photograph the next step too: stapling the covers on. It's just as well that I didn't photograph it because in addition to the ginormous heavy duty staple gun it also required a hammer and a lot of the time I was sweating and grumbling and wondering why I took this project on in the first place. Yeah. Anyway, I did finally get them finished.
Ta da! Here they are all revamped in their new fluffy flowers fabulousness.
Aren't they awesome? Totally groovy even?
I adore them! And I'm delighted that they turned out so well.
They're perfect for an outdoor tea party to for a camp out. Best for children though, they probably wouldn't hold the weight of an adult. If you love them and want them to spiff up your cottage they are for sale over in my shop.
