Cable Spool to Upholstered Stool

At The Shabby Creek Cottage, Gina’s husband works for a cable  company, so she has easy access to the leftover wooden cable spools.  She realized that the shape and height of the spools was just right for becoming a stool.

Gina totally got her green on with this project–starting with the upcycled cable spool and going on to reuse a cardboard box to build the sides of the stool.  She added some padding to soften things up, and then covered the stool in a gorgeous turquoise fabric.   Gina completely transformed a utiltarian throw-away into a beautiful and comfortable addition to her home.
