I found this beat-up old stool curbside around the corner from my house in the Glover Park neighborhood of D.C. It looked like something you might have seen in a laboratory 50 years ago. I aimed to freshen it up and give it a whole new look. I painted the legs a fresh color, “Seaside” by Rust-Oleum, in gloss, and cleaned up the chrome bar. The faux leather top was totally ruined, so I removed it and created a new one with a base cut from medium density fiberboard and some thick foam and batting and upholstery fabric (from Joann), selected to complement the leg color and extend the overall aqua theme.
Item with the same fabric: Aqua Blue Metal Chair with Comfy Cushion.
