DIY Bar Stool Makeover with Mod Podge

2 - bar_stool_makeover_before

We inherited a set of bar stools that were the perfect height for our counter and completely functional but they were a bit shabby.

Sanding Stools

Worn Edges by Sanding

Using some fabric and Mod Podge, I gave them a quick makeover.  I started by sanding the stools down.  I liked the worn look in some places.


Taped Edge

I traced around the stool seat leaving about two inches extra to fold over the sides.  The more the better.  It keeps the edges from fraying.  After I mod podged the seat and adhered my fabric, I hot glued the edges under the stool and used masking tape to hold down the sides.

Then all the fabric got an extra coat of mod podge.  Here are the stools against a newly painted chalkboard wall.  They’ve been holding up great to regular use!
