Repurposed materials are budget friendly, good for the environment, and a fun way to challenge your creativity. This easy DIY project is a great way to use repurposed materials. For this project, I am giving new life to an old stool by upholstering it and using it as an accent table.
My daughter has a faux fur stool that is a few years old. Consequently, it has seen better days. Therefore, I gave it a quick update by using an old t-shirt to cover it. But it got me thinking… what other items could be repurposed to upholster a stool or chair.
This is assuming that the stool already has batting. If not, hot glue thick batting in the shape of the seat to the stool. In addition, you can either remove the previous upholstery fabric or recover directly over the top. I usually reupholster directly over the top of any material.
The more simple style has a modern feel to fit in with my daughters ever changing style. Plus, the stool now serves as an accent table in her reading nook.
I hope that you are encouraged to create something in your home with repurposed materials. If so, please save this to your DIY Pinterest board, or follow mine, here. And if you are looking for more home decor and DIY ideas, you can follow me on instagram at @cutertudor.
