My third graders study Northern Africa in Social Studies and I am considering doing this as a cross curricular project and have them print their own patterns on the fabric they use for their stool.
Step 1: Supplies
$ pieces of 6" (pine or poplar) 1.3/4X1.3/4 for the legs
foam 2" cut to 12" X 12"
Fabric 22" X 22"
8 long screws (I use 2.5" wood screws)
Cabots stain (or polystain, 1 step interior wood stain)
upholstery tacks (28)
optional.......spray adhesive, wood glue
Step 3: Staining
Apply stain with a brush and wipe away excess with a rag.
Step 5: Stained side of top
Step 6: Wood glue
Using wood glue helps hold the legs in place to prepare for the next step.
