The fabric was stapled onto the seats with this....gift wrap design.
Behold! Spray paint, foam padding, and fancy canvas from stash ... and we have new stools. Wouldn't it be nice if office cubicles could be this fun?
Each seat took 1/2 yard. I got this fabric a while ago from Mary Jo's cloth store in NC. I stitched the corners, but my husband did all the rest: unstapling, painting, measuring cloth, marking stitching lines, cutting padding, reassembling and restapling. He thinks that after reupholstering two couches and a stuffed chair, anything else is cake.
