Make a Mid Century Stool

I never thought it would be easy to make a mid century stool, but I was wrong. I got the idea from this post on Salvage Love.

All I did was bid on (and win) on some vintage mid century legs on eBay. Go ahead, do a search. I forget how much mine cost, but there are options to fit many budgets.

Then I took an old cube I had and asked Mick to attach the legs to the top.

It looked a lot like this one, except the top had buttons. Sorry, it doesn’t exist in it’s original form anymore.

I now have a functional mid century stool that can also serve as an ottoman or extra seating. It’s already inhabited several places in our house, most recently, the entry way. It’s actually one of my favorite pieces.

    You’re killing me… I’m still on the pillow idea. And the spoons.

    Tee hee, without Mick I wouldn’t be able to do anything around the house. :-)
