Chevron Stool with Poms

This past winter I took an upholstery class with my friend, Heather (the sister-in-law of last weeks Twinsie, Ariel).

Heather, being a complete go-getter, re-upholstered a legit, full sized arm chair. I, on the other hand, did this measley, weasley little stool.

This stool was a $2 garage sale find that I picked up two years ago with the intention of reupholstering, even though at the time I had no reupholstering skills. I don't really consider my lack of skills when I buy things.

Me, hard at work. Heather, harder at work.

 I have to admit, my teacher helped me with A LOT of this, and there is no way I could do this again on my own in the future. No way.

Who's obsessed with poms? I am, I am! Check out my "Put a Pom on It" Pinterest board.

The stool currently resides in our hallway. It would have made a good time-out chair, but it's a little too cheerful for that. Plus, I don't want any tantrums being thrown on it.

So if you consider only the cost of materials this would have been about $20. 

And look what I came across on Pinterest... my stools mama. It's the Ziggy chair from Urban Outfitters.

  2. AND we spent probably about $30 for an eerily similar ottoman from Target! Yellow is my favorite!

  3. So cute! You (and your teacher, haha!) did a great job! I want to see how your friend's turned out too! -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)
