This is an easy project and my guide for how to reupholster a foot stool using hot glue. We all need uncomplicated DIY projects to keep our creativity flowing.
During my daughters recent room makeover, I was determined to use as much of our own items as I could!
I love making something look new and different with out spending money!
Who’s with me on that??
I have had this stool in her room since she was about 4 years old. It was bought by my sister for really cheap at an estate sale. It was a cute stool but not her style anymore.
First thing to do was remove the skirt. It was stapled on so I just had to basically pull it off.
Next was to spray paint the legs GOLD!
I used the same can of gold spray paint that I used on the Thrift Store Lamp Makeover.
Sorry I didn’t take a picture of this…I’m pretty sure you all know how this part is done 🙂
Next I had to cut the fur fabric to fit. Easy Square!
Pull the fabric up around the stool and cut off any extra that you will not need.
Don’t cut too much at first, you can always trim any extra as you glue.
Get you glue gun heated up while you are cutting away!
Then glue one side of each corner first, then the other. The fur was very easy to work with because it didn’t require perfect edges.
If you use a different fabric you would need to be more meticulous here.
That is it! How to Reupholster a Foot Stool that is EASY! FUN! AND FURRY!
She is sitting in here new home…you can see that here.
I hope you enjoyed this little project of mine as much as I loved doing it!
