Okay, I Added Duct Tape to a Piece of Furniture!

2.6K Views
I bought a thrift shop stool and after removing the tape with the price of $2, I found out why it was $2!
So I "mended" it with duct tape!
A little duct tape, a little paint, and a cute painting style and it's ready for the workshop.
I did notice a tear in the living room leather sofa...Hum!

You haven't lived until you've tried to weave duct tape!

My finished woven duct tape stool. I dipped painted the legs. I know, so last year! But I missed trying this style. Perfect for the workshop!

    Try goo gone, it should remove tape glue.

      @Dianna Blumricl Funny, but in the end I wanted the duct tape on the furniture. In fact, it was when I tried removing the tape that I realized duct tape would be perfect and sticky to make a cover for the stool. So far it's holding up great. :)

      @Sonali Mishra First cut the tape a bit longer than the widest part. Then I wove the tape on my kitchen counter into a square first. I did this like making a woven pie crust. I held tape in place by sticking over a corner while I laid the threading strip in place. After my square was made, I lifted my woven tape and taped to the stool top. Then using a blade cut to fit just inside the roll edging. There are more photos on the website. What type of furniture are you doing? I would only try this on a stool top. Wish I could do our leather couch that's cracking!! :)
