- Make sure the stool is in good working shape, I’ve seen a lot of these stools covered in rust.
- Look to see how the pieces are attached, if they are riveted on you won’t be able to take them off to recover them.
- Get a good quality vinyl to recover the piece. I used glitter vinyl with a stretchy backing, it makes the vinyl easier to stretch and there is no fear of tearing it.
I used spray adhesive to attach the vinyl on the back rest and tacky glue for the seat.There were a lot of curves that I needed to stretch around, using a ton of clips helped me work out all of the wrinkles. I let it dry overnight with the clips, did a final trim down and put it back onto the stool.
The chevron skirt is hot glued onto the bottom edge. Originally I had tried to install it under the seat, but there was too much bulk to get the seat reattached.
My kitchen is finally coming together, I really need to finish that giant silverware :D
Have a super crafty weekend!!!
