I bought this stool on Saturday at a local thrift store for 5 bucks. Obviously it is in terrible shape and I see it as a good first project on refinishing the wood and reupholstering the top. I already have taken it completely apart, removed the old fabric, and I am half way done sanding it.
I plan to give the wood a nice finish with Minwax. Thinking about going for a slightly darker finish. I am still completely undecided on fabric, need something durable and bold. Any suggestions are welcome.
A picture that my mom purchased in college in Ithaca, NY that I adopted when I took off for school myself. During my freshman year I customized it as my own by coloring in the hair with a Prismacolor marker. I just touched it up, it was more purple last go around but it had faded over the past couple years. The original photograph is by Joe Covello tagged #353.
