There is something about this little fur stools that I just love
Months ago I saw one of these little cuties and ever since then I knew I had to have one
They seem to be everywhere …..
Let’s take a look and then I will show you how I made my own and by passed all the higher price tags
Aren’t they cute……I have attached more links below, but first
let’s take a look at my DIY Fur Stool
This is how the little guy started out.
A Golden color pleather covering…..nothing to write home about.
I picked this stool up at a thrift store for $10
I knew it had potential for greater things
but at the time I bought the gold stool
I hadn’t caught the fur bug and wasn’t aware of the fur stools
When I saw my first fur stool I thought of this stool waiting in my attic for a makeover
So it began
Staple Gun & Staples (optional)
If you like the legs of your stool the way they are then you can skip this step
but I thought it would look cute to paint them white
I painted the legs of the stool white. I used chalk paint that adheres to the varnished legs really well
I painted two coats of the chalk paint
After dry, I lightly distressed the the legs for a worn look.
Then I added one coat of polyurethane matte finish to seal and protect
Cutting the Material & Batting
Once all the painting was completed it was time for the fun part
Covering with the faux fur fabric
I found this faux fur at Joann Fabric.
It is 58″ wide.
My stool was 18″ inches wide and 14″ inches deep
I purchased 3/4 yard of fabric at $27.99 per yard – I had a 50% coupon
so my material cost $10.50
Place the stool upside onto your batting or foam
Cut to fit the top or seat of the stool
Next place the stool upside down on the fur material
Cut large enough to allow the material to wrap around and to the underneath of the stool
Applying the Fabric
Center the stool, upside down on the batting and fabric
Staple the fabric in the center on one side
On the opposite side from where you just stapled, pull the fabric slightly taut and staple in place
Then staple the other sides.
Continue to staple in a few more spots.
After a few staples were placed I begin to use my glue gun.
If you prefer you can only use staples, but I liked the addition of the glue to make the fur flat around the edges
Apply glue in spots around the legs, straightening the fur as you go
Trim the access material around the legs to fit then glue
I think the total time for this project was 45 minutes, not counting drying time for the legs.
Cost of this project:
Stool – $10.00
Faux Fur – $10.50
Batting – $ 2.50
Total Cost $23.00
Do you like the fur stool look? Is there a room in your home that you would like to have a stool like this?
