Sitting Pretty

Posted by Dori Nottingham

I love do it yourself projects. I saw this and instantly wanted to make a small footstool or ottoman. I found all the belts at a local thrift shop for under ten bucks and looked for a stool or some kind. Didn't find what I was looking for so the project is on hold. It didn't have much instructions to the projects but I'm sure it's not that hard (famous last words I'm sure).
I saw stool on ReadyMade.com. Their instructions were as follows.
Replace a worn-out seat cushion with sturdy—and beautiful—leather belts. Weave together the straps across the top of the frame, pull taut, and buckle each one underneath (if any of the belts are too long to stay tight, use an awl or utility knife to make extra holes). Trim off any excess leather, and take a load off.
