I found this vintage rattan stool at Goodwill some time ago. It was only $2.99! I forgot to take a before picture but it was just old, dry rattan and loaded with cobwebs.
I sprayed it white and then gave it the dipped look by spraying the bottom portion with metallic gold.
I made a little slipcover for the top.
This fabric has cute little birds flying around. It was originally the lining fabric of a coat. I had used the outside fabric and saved the lining for a future project... like this one!
Next I made 8 tassels. I used a discarded package to make the tassels. Here's how:
- Wrap the yarn around the package about 20 times for each tassel.
- Slip it off the package and tie another piece of yarn around the center.
- Cut the loops at both ends and then fold in half.
- Wrap a length of yarn around the top third and tie to form the tassel.
And voila! We have a cute little boho chic stool!
This will be going to my space at the antique mall with all the rest of the stools I've made over!
I have a couple more stools to makeover, stay tuned!
