A pattern perfect stool

April 5, 2009 6 Comments

We visited a recycle/refashion center today and this little piece of furniture just begged to be brought home to our household (although I don’t think my boyfriend heard the stool’s call quite as loud as I did…). The pattern tears must be from a pattern magazine, I suspect it’s from the Swedish Allt om handarbete but I can’t tell for sure. The surface is coated with some kind of lacquer that looks like it’s acrylic based.

This patterned piece now resides in our kitchen and I have to say it’s the most charming stool I have ever met 🙂

    That stuff might be decoupage glue.

    >> Geek sewing: Thank you for the info. I'm such a craft illiterate, sewing is the only thing I'm familiar with.

    How could you not buy that stool? It was meant for you!

    We must have ESP—first the curtains and now the stool. I just decoupaged my kitchen stools with a great print paper. I will send a pic to you!
