Silly Boys!


Last week, my friend dropped by with this little stool. She asked, "can you save her?"


Two different {male} contractors said she can't be fixed. Now you DIY-ers are already seeing all the possibilities.....me too! It would not be a good idea to try and repair the split top


It would probably split again over time. However, is that where your imagination ends.....boys? Have you seen her legs?


What about those feet?


She's Cinderella, and those are glass slippers! I will be working on her and posting the "after" in a few days. How wold you fix her? What would your plan of attack be?

Neat. I would add a steel seat if I could lay my hands on one but I would probably try fixing the wood seat with much frustration first.

Love the legs and feet! Kerry's idea of a steel seat would be fantastic! Or what about taking the wood and "wrapping" it in some kind of metal strapping. It might mimic what looks like metal balls under the claws!

I cannot wait to see what comes of this gem! Mosaic tiles would look awesome. Good luck!

Your next blog on this beautiful thing makes me so excited. What could be that idea that is currently in your mind? Hmmm...patience is a virtue. LOL

What about a tractor seat? The old metal kind. Or could you possibly cut a piece of wood to size, then cover with upholstery? A good way to add a pop of color to an area!

I'm am very curious as to what your plans are for this. I wouldn't have a clue, but I know how clever you are. Can't wait!

I'm not sure how I would fix it - I'd have to really think about it. Can't wait to see what YOU do though!

The girls got legs! Bet it will be great - can't wait.

I wouldn't have the first idea, but if anyone can do it, you can!

Carrie @ Hazardous Design said...

I'm stumped. Will you make a new seat and attach it? Whatever you do, it will be so worth it, those ball and claw feet are amazing.

Mimi said...

Love those feet. Can't wait to see the re-do. I know it will be amazing!

It has potential - not sure how thick or solid the lower circular part of this is but you could add another circular wooden piece or make a round seat cushion or upholster it, perhaps?

Tiffany @ {Living Savvy} said...

I would use my dremmel to remove some of the center and insert some biscuits then glue back together. Or you could just glue and clamp and see! Can't wait to see what you come up with... love the stool!

Staci@asaltbox said...

Those is one unique and very cool stool! Hmm, the possibilities. I think they would look really neat with a stainless steel seat. I don't know how that would be accomplished, just an idea. I'm excited to see what you decide on!

Emily said...

Wow..this will be impressive..can't wait to see...

I would love to see you put your upholstery skills to use and make a little tufted top. She does have great legs and pretty feet!

You guys are great! To be honest...I wasn't sure what I would do. I am going to use one of these ideas! thanks everyone.

Nicole Scott said...

Wow, I love it too. Seems like you have some salvage shopping in your future! That looks like a fun project. Can't wait to see what you do.
