Featured: Thanks Angie
I love to restore ... I found this industrial stool at the 25¢ Sale at Fabulous Finds Thrift Store parking lot sale, so I grabbed it ... pretty sad looking but had good legs and rollers.
Yep ... paid 25¢ ... one Quarter ... for it !!
Her shiny chrome legs were a little rusty and pitted so Mr. Z. rubbed, sanded and cleaned them up to a paint-able condition.
I had been hearing so much about Rust-Oleum oil rubbed bronze paint, I just had to try it on these legs. Looks like she has been in the sun too long.
I taped the rollers to shield them from the paint.
After removing the red vinyl seat cover, I determined the next seat cover was done by a man, because most men think Duck-tape is the best thing since sliced bread and it will fix everything.
Anyway, my Mr. Z. does.
(actually, originally came from a man's workshop)Well, let me tell you ... this was the hardest to remove Duck-tape that I have ever come across. I thought he had used liquid nails to apply it, but was told that some of the older duck-tape was that way ... gooey-glue.
Long story short ... finally got that stuff off and found that several of the springs were broken. No way to repair those ... just removed ... filled the cavity in the seat with high-denisty foam ...
stretched webbing across that ...
added the original cotton back on ...
well most of it ...then upholstered with ticking fabric. No sewing ...
everything was either tacked or glued on. I used the raveled ends of the fabric to cover the cording.
Turned out pretty nice.
I did not have a plan for it, but looking back ... it makes a neat kitchen stool and if I had considered that, I would have done it differently.
Thanks for the visit. Hope your enjoyed.
Would love to hear from you.
