I needed a new stool for work in the worst way! Mine was so tall that I spent half the day hunched over my desk, lol. I found this beauty at a thrift store for $17. Spent about $15 on paint and fabric. Overall, I think it turned out awesome! I work in the motorcycle industry so I'm sure I won't have to fight any of the guys for my seat, lol.

Before:



My audience - making sure I'm doing things right. Sully on the right, Bud on the left.


Primer and a bit of hot pink!


A little black...


Oh look... someone has already recovered this! What a lovely shade of 70's orange, lol


The seat is finished! I covered the bottom and top of the chair with fabric then with thin vinyl to make sure it stays protected.


It was hard to cover the back because of the curve, but I think I did pretty darn well Smiley


Top and bottom together


All finished!!

It's not a real sport unless you can die from massive internal injuries.
