Crochet Seat Cover

 Step Stool Cover

Fun seat cover made up for this old antique step stool that desperately needed something. The cushion was worn and cracked hard plastic, the steps discolored and beat up wood, held together by rusted metal. At the same time, the stool is just so useful and still very sturdy that I could not bare to part with it. So, like usual, my first thought was to CROCHET IT!


Starting with the yarn, I chose colors I liked in the our kitchen, and that I had on hand. Drawing from mosaic looking, mandala type crochet, I started by searching for the perfect square.  All the while knowing that it would need to be rectangle and need to fit around the stool.  Putting together some ideas, I ended up with this. It didn't turn out too bad, and no-one complains about my ugly stool any more.  You may notice, I still have a hard time steering away from all the browns.

                                          A fresh coat of paint and it is good as new!


This project is all about the Reduse/Reuse/Recycle. I am big on "trash to treasure",  I find that turning something that could end up in a land fill into something useful, to be a wonderful thing. 

Thank you for stopping by.
May you find joy and inspiration in life.
Best wishes and Happy crocheting!
