D.I. Why? Recovering A Stool. Or Not.

22 December 2011

Dear Diary,

The other day, I was just reupholstering a stool, minding my own business, when something AWESOME happened. I will tell you the story now. It begins with an ugly stool. Well, it’s not really ugly but the fabric on top is UberCheezBallz. Emily and I found it at the flea market for $30. This is what the stool looked like:

I had all my supplies out to reupholster, ready to change the fabric to a white linen. But then when I removed the ugly fabric I found a pretty chevron fabric underneath. Yay! Thus, I decided to just keep that fabric intact. Score, right?

In conclusion, everyone lived happily ever after because it was the easiest reupholstery job ever and the fabric underneath was even cooler than the fabric I was going to cover it with. Truly a fairytale ending.

    That is crazy, because the fabric on top looks 50’s, but fabric underneath looks 70’s. Reverse time warp. Or something like that. Great score!

  2. How I’d like for that to happen when I wash off my make-up before going to bed at night… FABULOUS MAKE-UNDER!! congrats on the find

  3. Why doesn’t that ever happen to me? I found you from Emily’s blog and i’m a new follower. yay! Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays, Happy Hannukah, whatever you prefer… I wish it to you).

    what a nice surprise!

  5. I’m laughing that someone would cover that gorgeous fabric up for the one you took off – great story! Found you through Emily’s blog. Such a clever title. (I would use that for me as in DIY??? why, when you can just buy it done, ha ha).

  6. Lovely chevron fabric. Why do I only find gross, yellowed fabrics when I take old fabric off chairs?
