There's this phase that most of us go through. We use old spools for coffee tables, crates as book storage (ok so some of us *cough* myself included *cough* never let go of that phase). College-chic right? Well take that same spool and turn it into small space seating or a great piece for your vanity. Want to see what this spool looks like now?
When we last stopped in over at Shelly Leer's corner of the world she was busting out this acrylic side table. She's back up to her crafting antics and has made this spool-turned-ottoman-stool-seating.
Although you can find her over at Mod Home Ec, this project was done for IndyStar and is where you can find all the details. You'll need some foam, batting and a bit of cardboard. It will take your free or Craigslisted spool finds from college norm to adult dinner party chic. Plus, it's way better than squatting on a floor cushion all night. Check out the details at IndyStar.
