Lay your tin bucket onto an antique chair to figure out where it should sit
Measure the distance between the back of the bucket and the back of the chair
If you're not happy with the results try a different placement for the bucket and draw again
Make sure not to hurt your fingers
Clean up the edges of your circle with a piece of fine grit sandpaper
You can apply a few coats of paint until you achieve your desired look
Sealing will protect your chair from rotting and weathering
Add any extras to your bucket that you wish!
Have on old chair you don't want anymore? Before tossing it, consider repurposing it into a shelf!
Decide how deep you would like the shelf portion of your shelf to be and draw an even line across the seat
Use a circular saw to cut across the seat of the chair all the way through
Cut off the back legs of the chair as close to the seat as possible
If you have cross beams on your chair you can remove them with a screw driver
Remember to paint the rails if you are using them
Use a sanding block to rough the edges of the chair pieces & allow the wood color to peak through from underneath
For the top piece of the chair you will attach them to the edge of the seat where you cut through
Take the chair rails you cut earlier & using wood glue and screws, screw them to the shelves
Add two actual brackets to the bottom of the chair and paint them to match
These shelves are perfect for towels to hang from, but can really be used for a multitude of things!
Here's a hint: Now it's soft and cozy!
You will only need the base, seat and legs
If you are using two pieces, be sure they are aligned as closely as possible
Be sure to leave a large amount of excess, so you can wrap it around the underside of the stool
Flip your stool over, and secure the excess faux fur to the base of the stool using a staple gun
You can use the excess faux fur pieces by placing them onto any bare areas on the underside of the stool base
