Seasonal Scandi Crafts
I AM ALWAYS ATTRACTED TO SMALL BENCHES AND STOOLS AS THEY ARE A GREAT WAY TO ADD A SPLASH OF COLOR TO A FORGOTTEN CORNER OF A ROOM. EASY TO MOVE AROUND WHEREVER NEEDED, YOU WILL BE TEMPTED TO MAKE QUITE A FEW OF THESE! I HAD THE IDEA FOR THIS STOOL WHEN I BOUGHT A COLLECTION OF OLD BOXES—BY ATTACHING A FEW PIECES OF WOOD, IT SEEMED JUST THE RIGHT THING TO MAKE. ADDING THE LOVELY COLOR OF BARN RED FINISHED IT OFF. I MUST ADMIT I DID GET CARRIED AWAY AND HAVE A FEW OF THESE STORED AS GIFTS.
You Will Need
Working on a hard surface, position one of the legs inside the box and hold firmly in place. Use a hammer and nails to secure the box to the legs, using two nails per leg per side. Stand the stool upright and add four nails to each corner to secure the top of the box to the legs. Measure the distance between the two legs and cut the support piece to this length. This extra piece of wood is necessary to support the legs. Slot the support position into position and nail through the legs on each side into the support piece.
