Before and After: Upholstering a Spool

Before and After: Upholstering a Spool

I'm sure you've seen giant spools being used as coffee tables before, but what about something smaller? Could you upholster a spool and make it look more modern? Well, it turns out the answer is yes, you can, and it looks even cooler than you might think.   

Jacqueline from Rock Paper Scissor shares her full tutorial (with pdf pattern) for transforming spools into upcycled stools that double as upholstered side tables.

Try going to your local electrical suppliers (electricians - supply) where these are spools for their many cables.  Chances are they have a few empty ones!!!  Or go to a Building site and ask if you could have the spools once they have been emptied!
