It’s not like the stool was actually broken or anything. It’s just that the bottom of the legs looked like this.
And we have dark hardwood floors in the closet. I am short so I need this stool to reach the top rods and didn’t want to risk the stool scratching the floor.
This was my temporary solution to that.
Not quite the look I wanted in my closet so I thought that I’d add some felt to the bottom of the legs. Sounds simple enough, right?
But first I have to tell you this. When I turned over the stool I noticed it said this:
I must say that anytime I hear or see the word, “Malaysia” I think of Zoolander and THIS SCENE,
Okay, back to my project.
I turned the stool over to size the bottom of the legs. Please disregard the current covering on my craft room stool (yes…it’s an old pair of shorts…I can only get to one project at a time…haha!!) and the pile of books on the floor. The room is a work in progress.
I figured out that the size of the bottom of the leg was approximately the same size as this paper die cut I just bought! Hurray!! This will make it faster and easier for sure.
I had some felt that had adhesive on one side so all I had to do was press out four circles, right?
As you can see at the top of the pic the die cut only worked on the peel away paper and not the felt material. I then traced one of the washers I was using for another project and traced out 8 circles total. I wanted to double up on the felt so there was enough padding between the bottom of the stool leg and the hardwood floor.
After cutting the circles out I peeled off the adhesive cover. I then applied a small amount of hot glue and put one circle on. I waited just a couple of moments then put a little more hot glue on and then the second circle. I repeated this for all four legs.
It looks like it is going to work out just fine. I am also going to apply the felt to the bottom of my laundry baskets so I can get rid of that bathroom rug that I am currently using.
Have you “fixed” anything around your house lately? What projects are you working on?
