I love my bamboo barstools, but the seats were looking a little worn.
I went to Hobby Lobby and purchased a remnant upolstery fabric for $7.00 a yard.
It only took one yard to recover these stools.
This is a picture of the "tired stools"
I took the seats off the stools, laid the fabric out flat so the pattern of the new houndstooth would be straight and pulled it tight and stapled with a staple gun. Because the original fabic was not torn or stained, I left it on. No need for backing!
I didnt take pictures of all the stapling, but it was pretty easy. Just started at the beginnng and worked my way to the back. I did pick a fabric that was easy to work with. I think stripes or too much pattern, would be a little harder to keep straight.
yay! finished product!
