Restyled French Country Stools
These are the chairs that Youngest Son got rid of when we finished transforming the chairs I posted a while back. He was going to toss them, but I couldn’t let that happen. An idea was taking shape in my head.
They needed a bit of help.
The problems are pretty obvious with this one.
Not so obvious in this pic is the foot rail (left side of pic). It was broken off, not pulled out of, the front leg.
I repaired the legs and rails, and since I only wanted the bottom portion of each chair I simply cut the backs off.
The bottoms and the legs were painted black and lightly distressed with some sanding.
The tops didn’t need painting because they would be covered. I dug out these upholstery fabric choices for the seats.
A tiny bit of sewing, soft stuffing and a lot of staples later and I had a couple of comfy perches.
What do you think?
