The furry stool has officially taken in excess of the Internet! Well, at least my corner of it to say the least. I feel like every single house decor retailer I browse has their personal version, but a single point they seem to be to have in frequent is a pretty higher price tag tag. I’ve imagined I discovered a good one particular only to uncover their cost to be several hundred or even over a thousand bucks (!!!!). Yeaaaaah, that is not truly the budget I had in mind. I like to maintain mid-height stools by the window at our residence so the kitties can use them to look out the window (a.k.a “cat television”), and I believed one of individuals furry stools would be just the ticket to fit in with the rest of the decor. Turns out, it only took me a few minutes (and way significantly less income) to create a stool that seems to be just as wonderful as its expensive competitors!
– round 15″ wood board
– gold spray paint
– midcentury sixteen” legs (four)
– angled leg plates (four)
– furry material
– staple gun and extended staples
First, use a drill to attach your angled leg plates to the bottom of your round circle (I connected mine about 1″ away from the edge). I then gave my legs a swift coat of gold spray paint to make them look a minor far more high-priced. Then screwed them into the angled plates.
Area your furry materials under your wooden circle and reduce around the circle so that you have about three-four” of materials allowance about the wood. You can check your nearby fabric store for furry material alternatives, or residence shops like Marshalls and T.J.Maxx will often have faux and genuine sheepskins as effectively.
Use your staple gun to attach the material to the bottom of the stool at the four factors amongst each leg, and then fold the excess material as essential and staple that to the bottom as effectively. Flip that stool appropriate side up, and that’s it! You’re previously carried out!
It truly is variety of crazy how simple it was to develop this stool since it turned out so cute! If you want a thicker looking seat, you can also include a handful of layers of foam cut to size between the top of the seat and the material, but I like how the height of mine came out. It truly is crazy to consider that I could have paid several hundred far more dollars to get the very same feel, but if you request me, I feel it seems like a million bucks! xo. Laura
