Turn a Plain Stool into a Swivel Stool

1)   unscrew stool top from the legs

2)   get yourself a richelieu swivel plate from any hardware store. cut a 1” plywood base a little smaller than the top of the stool

3)   paint and decorate stool top, legs and plywood base

4)   the swivel plate has small screw holes on one side and bigger screw holes on the other side.  centre the swivel plate on the plywood base with the small screw holes down – screw in place

5)   drill one hole only right through the plywood using one of the bigger screw holes as a guide

6)   centre plywood base on stool top with the wrong sides together.  looking through the drill hole, line it up with the swivel plate screw holes and add screws in all 4 holes

7)   centre legs on plywood bottom, screw in place and voila your plain old stool is now a fun swivel stool

I painted the above stool with deco art patio paint so it can be used outside and the stool below was swivelled and painted with deco art acrylics about 5 years ago. I painted a set of 3 for my breakfast bar.  They have had a lot of use and abuse and are still in great shape.  

There is so many things that would be so much better if we could spin ’em 🙂
