Description: This was a boring blue stool that I bought at IKEA around 2000 (sorry don’t remember the name). It didn’t match anything in my current house, so I painted it a bright turquoise to match my dining room chairs. I took the seat off, attached some foam, and then upholstered with a bright orange and white laminate fabric. The entire project took about 2 hours, and voila! I have a crisp new stool to welcome spring!
