For years I thought upholstering chairs was this huge elaborate project that involved so many tools and so many brains. It’s so simple it’s almost embarrassing how easy it is. This past fall I was invited to raid Lyndsey’s garage because her family was having a free sale. Everything in garage was up for grabs so I snatched two bar stools, gave one to my sister and kept one for myself. I was planning on spray painting it until I watched Lauren Conrad effortlessly add padding and fabric to a stool on her blog. This was so easy and took less than 15 minutes to do. The padding on the bar stool is such a great idea and makes a huge difference. Now I can’t wait until spring to spray paint this stool white!
