Color Bomb Stool

YESSS!!! I've finished one of my projects again. And I LOVE it! I love the colors and have been wanting to do this for quite some time. 2 Weeks ago I found the right stool in the local thrift store. And around christmas I found a round stool at my mother in laws', so there's going to be a sequel... But first check out this one.



Do you see the washi tape around my finger? It works perfectly for when the yarn starts carving into your skin... I know, I'm hooked, but it works much better than a bandaid, 'cause it's smoother.

I'm absolutely in LOVE with my new stool. Sorry, I know, STOP! But sometimes you just get the colors right. (I think I will make a series of this color combination). And it was so easy to make. It's going to be used in my new and improved workspace. There will to be more pictures once it's completely done, but here is a preview.



I have so much more space now and it is possible to leave my sewing machine on my desk. Although I really loved my vintage desk (it's going to be picked up this afternoon:( ) I love the extra space I have now. Gives me some calm I guess. And because it's white I can take better pictures too.

Well I'm totally happy today. The sky is blue, the world is (snow) white and the sun is shining. A beautiful day to finish such a happy project...

Hope you too have a sunny day!!

  1. love the stool and your picture wall. I'll be interested to see what you do for the round stool. I have one to cover but haven't decided quite what to do yet. It's true a white desk makes for good pictures! Heather x

  15. It's so adorable!! And what a genius idea to use washi tape on your finger! I seem to have a constant indentation in my finger; people are beginning to ask if I'm trying to cut off my finger :P Thanks so much for sharing! :)

  17. fantastic idea.. to cover a stool top... ... question: how did u attach the elastic band at the end or what did u use to make it fit around the top of the stool? ... thank you

    1. I didn't use elastic. It's kind of elastic itself, but I must admit, sometimes it comes of. You just make it smaller at the end by decreasing the stitches. I suppose you could also insert a ribbon of some kind to keep it in place. Good luck!
