In order to use it as a small table, I needed to make a new top for it. So I unscrewed the seat and then measured the chair to determine what size I needed to make the new top.
Upcycle A Chair To A Bathroom Stool
I had a little kid sized chair I had bought off marketplace for only $5AUD, but due to it’s smaller size, it had no real purpose other than being cute for dolls to sit on in my daughter’s room. So I decided to give it some purpose and turn it into a side table/stool.
Once I had my measurements I then grabbed some pine boards (I had some leftover from a previous project), and I glued them side by side with some wood glue and then wiped away the access glue, and left to dry.
Next I used a compass tool to draw a circle onto my wood, using my previous measurements of the chair.
I then used a jigsaw to cut out the circle. I didn’t worry about being too perfect as I would fix it up and smooth it out later with the sander.
Next, I clamped my base to the bench and sanded the edges, unclamping, repositioning, then reclamping as I went.
Once I finished sanding, I then applied a coat of beeswax polish with an old rag.
Then it was ready to be attached to the chair frame. I just used the same screw from the old base and screwed it into the new one. 👍🏻
And it was done! 👍🏻
It can be used for multiple purposes now; a plant stand or a side table, but I decided to freshen up the kids bathroom with it and use it as a bathroom stool next to the bath. 👌🏻
