Intermediate

Materials:

  • Fabric of your choice (I used old curtains)
  • Scissors
  • Staple gun
  • Staples for fabric
  • 1 can Krylon Primer Spray
  • 1 can Krylon White Spray
  • Screwdiver
  • Old rag for wiping
  • 10 sheets newspaper
  • Extra set of hands to help with cushion

 

Instructions:

  1. Remove cushion from the bottom of the base.
     
  2. Clean the bottom base of the stool in preparation to be primed with spray paint.  Then lay out your newspaper on the grass and put your base on on the ground and open the primer and evenly spray a thin layer, then let sit for about an hour.
     
  3. Proceed to an open space in a room and lay the fabric (right side down) and put the cushion on top and proceed to pull tightly and staple in the corner. Pull on other side making sure no lines are in the fabric and it is neat but not to tightly pulled where it is deforming your cushion and proceed to staple to get it tight.  After you have stapled the fabric on to cushion, you take scissors and cut off excess fabric.
     
  4. Back outside to the bottom you spray another even layer of the primer and let sit another hour. Tak white spray paint and spray another even layer and let sit about hour in between. Continue this until white!
     
  5. After it has dried proceed to screw back on cushion to base and it is FINISHED!
