Ok,  so I was about to trash this bar stool that I was always tripping over when the hamster in my head starting spinning and I though "What can I do with this?"

I'm a firm believer in recycling, not just because of the environment but because I am unemployed and broke! I went into my craft lair/office/sewing room and found some scrap fabric that I had left over from recovering my dining room chairs and bar stools. I basically sat on the floor with it all and this is what I came up with. I already have two really nice bar stools and didn't really want another one so I made it into a table. I didn't want it to have the regular round top so scavenged the entire  house and miraculously found a piece of wood the exact size that I needed! I hot-glued it to the bar stool and covered it with the left over suede. then for the bottom shelved I basically glued some of the fabric to some foam core board that I just also happened to have and just tied some ribbons to the bottom bars for support. Crazy huh?



I think i'm gonna take it apart and sand an re-stain the legs...

Hey, that's a really neat idea.  I've been really wanting one of those little tables with shelves underneath, but I can't seem to find an affordable one- I'll have to give this a try!  I think I even have an old ugly barstool hanging out in my dad's garage somewhere...hmm...
