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.
How to Upholster a Bar Stool
This is the first project I’m sharing as a member of the 2019-20 Team. You’ll find the full tutorial, with tons of pictures and even a video from Sailrite that perfectly explains all the steps.
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!
