This FROSTA stool was found sad and lonely in the streets of Tel Aviv. After some painting and a new mixed upholstery, it fits perfectly into our weird furniture collection.
First – you take the legs off and paint, in this case – a glossy pink did the job.
Then – you sew the upholstery of your choice, round base and a sort of tube on the sides.
Finally – after adding some padding for comfort, put on the fabric, ruffle it tightly on the bottom of the stool, and tie with some nice ribbon. You can then cut the ruffles to make it look nicer.
