The stool had seen better days, serving many purposes, from painters stool to garden tabel...
Foot Stool Upcycle
I had a old and worn foot stool sitting in my garden for ages and was just about to throw it in the trash when I got this idea...
I started with removing the seat and sanding the stool with a sanding machine
I gave the stool two coats of paint and twisted the first section of the leather cord around the top of the stool
I twisted five sections of leather cords around the stool seat
I then twisted two sections of leather cord in the opposite direction.I also filled the holes from the old seat, as I could have done before I started the weaving with the leather cords.
To make the stool xtra solid and to make it a bit more interesting using mixed materials, I braided cotton rope in mid section of the seat
The stool is now serving as a side table in my livingroom. I love it when furniture that really belongs in the trash, get new life and new function
