Crafty Creations: Fabric Stool

Crafty Creations: Fabric Stool

Sometimes all it takes to breathe new life into an old space is a pop of color or a punchy pattern. Today’s Crafty Creations video teaches you how to do just that. Watch the video below to learn how to revamp a basic bar stool into a chic seat:

To recap, here’s what you will need:

  • a piece furniture
  • fabric
  • spray glue
  • hammer
  • scissors
  • x-acto knife
  • sharpie
  • staple gun
  • staples
  • foam padding
  • cutting mat

All of these items can be purchased at your local craft store (except for the piece of furniture, that’s really up to you).

Are you going to give this craft a try? Submit photos of your revamped furniture so I can take a peek…and maybe your reworked wonder will end up in a Member Spotlight post!

Also, don’t forget to check out the Decorate section of my website for more interior decor ideas!

Happy crafting!

XO Lauren

    Does anyone think that this could be done to a “”normal”” chair? It’s so cute but there aren’t any stools at my dads house :(

  • HistoryBeauty

    I’ve done this several times to old stools! It really makes them come alive again.

    I just did this on a cheap old coffee table and made a bench for the end of my bed! Turned a crappy piece into something chic!

    Wow its so funny cause I have two at home and always asked myself how to pimp up them :) Thank you for this amazing idea Lauren. Gonna try it out this weekend :) XOXO

  • Giselle Escamilla

    wow what a great idea! I’m actually going to be moving out because of school and with this idea I can make my apartment look nicer, and pimp the stole out:)

    Thanks Lauren!!

  • Julie Michaud

    Love the fabric you’re using! AND I absolutely love your shirt!! Please tell me where you got it!

  • Linh Ly

    that is soooo cute and a great idea! i cant wait to do that to some bar stools i have.


  • Crystal Cierlak

    That’s really cute. Those stools are pretty inexpensive at Target and Wal Mart, but I’ve always avoided them because they’re uncomfortable and ugly. This is a great alternative!

  • Sol Rodriguez Brusco

    Here they are!

    Just finished my barstools today! Just an FYI, there is inexpensive and BEAUTIFUL chevron fabric and! I bought this chevron fabric (1 yard) for $7.50 and there was a 20% shipping coupon for first time buyers…Just a heads up!

    Great tutorial… keep ’em coming!


  • Kate Noto

    I was wondering if you have any ideas that would be helpful with using river rocks and colorful stones? I also have leopard print gift paper and I don’t know what to do with them. I also have empty bottles at my boyfriends house and I was wondering if you have any ideas for those.
