Spring Has Sprung IKEA Stool





Materials: Stool

Description: This was a boring blue stool that I bought at IKEA around 2000 (sorry don’t remember the name). It didn’t match anything in my current house, so I painted it a bright turquoise to match my dining room chairs. I took the seat off, attached some foam, and then upholstered with a bright orange and white laminate fabric. The entire project took about 2 hours, and voila! I have a crisp new stool to welcome spring!

    That’s an Oddvar stool. I have my laptop on one right now. We use them as mini coffee tables. They still have their natural wood finish and don’t look as good as yours! That’s a great colour combination and the fabric pattern works well. Nice!

    I love this! My local(ish) Ikea doesn’t carry it, anyone have any ideas about where I could pick the stool up?
