This has to be one of the best value and easiest makeovers there is. I bought the stool in a junk shop for £7 and gave it a new lease of life.
You will need
Spray paint in orange
Piece of gift wrap, choose one printed on thick paper
1.Choose the steps
2.Sand the metal parts of the stool to remove any flakey bits of paint
3 Cover the wooden parts of the stool and in an outdoor space, spray the metal parts of the chair. Leave to dry. Re spray as necessary.
4 Choose a piece of substantial wrapping paper. The one shown here came from Dulwich Picture Gallery.
- Lay the stool on top of the reverse side of the paper and draw round the shape.
- Stick the paper onto the wooden steps with PVA and leave to dry
- Water down PVA and paint a protective coat over the paper. It will look milky to begin with but as it dries will become clear.
