it ain’t easy being green
Especially if you are green AND vinyl. Reminds me of the interior of my dad’s white 1972 chevy vega from when I was a kid.
This lovely vintage swivel stool was a Pink Geranium find from last week.
I had been searching high and low for a vintage drafting stool with back to use with my industrial work table.
You know, something pretty like this…
The problem with these? They are Puh-RICE-y!
The green vinyl one was a more budget-friendly option, so home it came.
I put my thinking cap on and decided that it was nothing some awesome fabric and a staple gun couldn’t fix.
I flipped it over, and removed the screws. The seat popped off very easily.
Then I recovered the seat with some awesome fabric that I got during half price week at Hancock Fabrics.
I attempted to do the same thing with the back rest but it was a no-go. I won’t bore you with the details.
Plan B. Whip out the Rustoleum flat black spray paint. Did you KNOW you could spray paint vinyl??? Rustoleum spray paint rocks my world.
Once it dried, I popped it back on and voila…
Toodle-loo, Kermit…hello, gorgeous!
Where have you been all my life?
There’s no way that budget-bustin’ drafting stool would have been as comfy as this!
Once again, PLAN B worked out alright and I’m a happy camper. 🙂
