I’ve noticed one thing about having my kids grow up and that is that when they come home there are lots of extra butts in the house. Suddenly my family of six is a family of 10 or more and my little living room is barely big enough to hold everyone. Not that I mind at all, but there isn’t enough seating for all of those butts.
We’ve put this Meditation Pouf to use that I made last summer but it still isn’t enough.
This ratty and tattered piano stool has been hanging around the basement for a while now and after an overflowing house over the holidays I decided I needed to spruce it up and put it to work.
And so I did.
Not only does it serve as extra seating but because the seat portion is firm it also makes a impromptu side table. It can go from the living room to the dining table in a pinch and it’s small enough that it doesn’t take up a ton of space in the room. Perfect!
Now I just need to find a couple more.
The fabric is from P/K Lifestyles and I got it at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores.
The paint is Krylon ColorMaster spray paint in Global Blue.
For the makeover:
- Remove the seat and sand down the wooden portion.
- Wipe with a tack cloth
- Spray with ColorMaster
- Cut the fabric two inches larger than the seat and staple it to the back of the seat.
- Reattach the seat
Edit: Two people said their mothers had a stool like this that came with a Singer sewing machine in the 1950’s. So it’s probably a sewing stool not a piano stool.
