BUILDING A FOOT STOOL - grain sack fabric and tips










I was at the drug store one
morning and passing by the magazines I found a new one to get. For me a new magazine means shutting out the world and enjoying some quiet time in a comfy chair.



  

 When I arrived home I decided to start flipping through the
 new magazine. That's the moment it happened ...... I flipped
 to the next page and saw some vintage foot stools that I
 adored and then the whole plan came into my head how to
 make my own. All the wood parts I used had been salvaged
 from different furniture pieces. To build the frames I used
 thick 1" plywood and vintage tapered legs. 

 

Plywood is strong and thick plywood can take a lot of weight.
My legs were attached either with threaded metal plates
 screwed to the plywood .... 

  
or they were bolted through the
 plywood making the legs permanent once upholstered.

 
******************************


I also added decorative pieces between the
permanent legs I bolted in place.

How I upholstered these stools can be read here:


Next time you see a little set of legs at a yard sale 
or thrift store think twice before you pass by.
