DIY pattern stool Part 2

It's finally ready and covered with plastic. My old kitchen stool actually looks cool now!

As I was talking in the earlier blog entry, I would do a tutrial on how to cover the stool's surface with plastic. This will help to keep the colours. Please keep on reading if you want to know how I did it :)


Sharp Scissors
Adhesive plastic

  • First, Measure the stool. Mine was about 26cm x 22 cm. I cut a piece of the plastic which was about 28cm x 24 cm.
  • Turn the adhesive plastic so that the plastic side is facing the floor and the paper side up.
  • Now make a fold in the paper following a line:
Now it's time to connect the plastic to the stool: 
Press the plastic onto the stool surface, and make sure that the plastic is not crooked!

Hold onto the plastic as....
you pull the paper at the same time. Make sure that you press the plastic onto the wooden surface as you pull.
Now it's time to cut! I like to do small cuts in the corners before starting the actual cutting. 
Always keep the plastic in a vertical position, this makes the cutting easier.
Finally you just need to press the plastic onto the wooden surface tigtly, and you're finished!
