diy: rope stool cover

Martha has this way of making me want to do projects that suddenly feel urgent to complete. We've had this kitchen stool since our first apartment - I bought it planning to paint right away, but after 3 1/2 years it hasn't been touched. But then I saw this stool cover tutorial in Martha's craft book, and within the same week I had gathered all of my supplies and we whipped this out in an hour:



I chose sisal rope for a nautical look (not the most comfortable, but we don't use this stool for seating). We measured and marked the center of the stool top, used liquid nails glue, and repeated the steps of winding rope & gluing until it was covered. I like how it turned out and plan to finish it off by painting the legs white....someday.

Love your knack for nautical flare! BTW, Apartment Therapy posted your project in the SF section. Kudos! (People can be brutal and stupid over there, so just ignore their comments). GREAT job. :)
