Space is super valuable in my 8' yurt, so I have been trying to replace my wooden desk chair with something  less bulky. I was hunting around the side yard for aluminum or steel tubing to rivet or weld into a chair when I found a school stool! I updated it with spray paint and leather. Sanding off the rust took the longest. I am really pleased with the goat leather seat cover. I bought a goat skin from PeggySueAlso on etsy for a different project, and there happened to be loads left over. I used the 3m spray adhesive to attach it to the plastic seat, then used marine goop on the underside to attach the free edge. Since this was a scrap, it was a little shy of the correct dimension in some areas, so I used clothespins to hold the leather in place while the glue dried.

Here is a before and after of sorts, with our welding stool on the left and my desk stool on the right.

It is very pretty. I love the colour of the leather. And so you live in a yurt?
