spools as decor

  • Posted on January 25, 2020 at 10:41 am

i have been collecting these spools for several years now, with the thought that i would cover them with knit or crocheted stitches as use them both as room decor and photo props for my girls to sit on. the esk stitch sampler kal prompted me to get off my butt and actually do it this year!

    I can see these as chairs or stools.

    When I was in college one of my roommates got a big industrial spool and we used it as a dining table. I have no idea how she got it in the house but it worked for us.

      they are a little tall for stools (i have some smaller ones that would work that way but they aren’t covered yet) that would be a really cool table! i would love to find some life sized ones and cover them for me
