Chic DIY vintage stools

There are a lot of beautiful and practical pieces of furniture that you can create by yourself. Chairs and tables are the simplest ones. In this article we’re going to take a look at some very beautiful and artistic stools. They have a lovely vintage design and it’s very fashionable. It’s also a project that requires a very small budget.The chairs have similar designs and equally beautiful looks. The best thing about them is that you can make them yourself. The easiest way to make a vintage stool is to use other existent stools.

You’ll need to sacrifice those in order to create a new one. You can use one or more stools with flat wooden tops. You’ll also need some paint in case you want to change the color of the texture, sticky back plastic or wallpaper, mod podge and vintage or self-printed decals.

To make this lovely top you can use either sticky back plastic or wallpaper. You need to peel off the backing and place the sticky back plastic on the top. If you choose to use wallpaper you’ll need to paste the back of the paper with mod podge and then carefully press it in place. The advantage of using wallpaper is that you can choose any color or pattern you like. Also, to make everything stick in place and for durability you can add a coat of paint of lacquer. You can also paint the entire stool if you like or you can leave it plain. It’s a simple and rewarding project.{found on dottieangel}.
