With Covid-19 stay-at-home order in effect in Ohio (thankfully), comfort in front of the TV has added importance. So, that’s how this simple foot stool came to be. Oak legs are a repurposed board from an old end table. The rest is plywood remnents. The ideal fabric would be leather, but, until we can shop again, the blue fabric will do. Thanks @CanalboatJim for the insipration.

Nice stool. I agree the blue makes it more a Queen Somebody like piece. Leather would serve Mission a bit more. I am impressed with the upholstery work though. Did you do it?

Thanks. Yes, I did the upholstery. It’s a little rough, but it went better than I expected.

Great project, Larry. I love the idea of recycling or repurposing old wood, it generally has more caricature than anything you can get at Home Depot. Good to see you back at the workbench.

Nice… and the blue is attractive but the leather would be amazing.
