This stool is a real all-rounder and finds its place in every room. With our DIY guide, you can easily build the furniture yourself.

That's what you need for the stool:

  • Wooden stool (eg from Ikea, ODDVAR, 9, 99 €)
  • black acrylic paint
  • sturdy cardboard (corresponding to the side surfaces of the stool)
  • Wallpaper (Rasch Textil_Blackandwhite, about Wallpaper Institute)
  • Cutter with cutting pad
  • double-sided adhesive tape
  • Foam (according to the stool surface)
  • black fabric
  • brush
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • Cutting rail / cutting ruler

And that's how easy it is:

1. Paint the seat and a piece of the legs of the stool with the acrylic paint black and let it dry.

2. Measure the side surfaces (height x width) with the ruler and cut 4 pieces of cardboard in these dimensions.

3. Measure the entire circumference of the stool and cut the wallpaper accordingly with the cutter.

4. Cover the 4 sides of the stool partially with double-sided adhesive tape and then glue with the cardboard.

5. Stick the double-sided tape to the cardboard surfaces, then glue the wallpaper to it.

6. Beat the foam with the fabric, turning the edges like a gift, then fix with a few stitches.

7. Stick double-sided tape to the seat of the stool and press the piece of foam on it.
