With a little bit of fabric, foam, sewing machine and staple gun, follow this step-by-step tutorial on how to upholster a bar stool for your kitchen.

We’ve had these two plain Jane wooden bar stools that have mostly been taking up space. My husband recently completed our kitchen renovation and the only thing missing was a cute, comfy stool.

While shopping at Hobby Lobby one day, I came across this beautiful paisley blue fabric.

I just knew it would make for a beautiful cushion cover for my soon-to-be transformed kitchen stool. I was quite pleased with the results.

I purchased fabric from sailrite when I made new cushion covers for my friend’s patio furniture. That’s when I first discovered their YouTube channel. They do a great job of explaining how to reupholster just about anything and everything!
