My boyfriends dad was getting rid of this old stool. The seat has broken and he tried to fix it, but the wood he used was very rough and chipped easy. Every time you sat down you got dusty wood chips on your but. Couldn't stand to see it go in the trash so viola. I used around 50+ plastic bags braided and sewn together (using a drinking straw and more bags for the needle and thread).
This stool is now my bedside table to hold my latest book, journal, pen and small lamp. Perfect hight and small enough to fit in my 1 room place. Now I can can have an extra seat for company and not have to worry about storage. :D
