I made the monogram on top of the stool using software on my computer, giftwrap, Contact paper, and spray glue. Since I started blogging I have learned and am still learning all about Photoshop Elements.  That is how I created the printable monogram, but you can do it in Microsoft Word and a few other software programs, too. I painted this stool over 20 years ago.  Sponge painting was big in the DIY world back then. I was also inspired to do the makeover by all the colorful gift wrap I have hanging on the wall in my studioffice. I knew if I used the paper to decorate the stool, it would need to be sealed along with the printed monogram.
Since the center of the stool is flat, I experimented with using clear Contact paper and self adhesive laminating sheets over the giftwrap. After I made the monogram on my computer to size for my stool, I started thinking of other ways to use the Contact paper sealing technique.  One thing led to another and I ended up creating a few more projects using computer printout monograms. Computer with a program that lets you move type layers or text boxes – Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Publisher, Microsoft Word,  Power Point are a few that I know of. You can find clear Contact paper and Self Adhesive Laminating Sheets at Walmart.  Clear Contact paper has a matte finish. Cut monogram out.   Next, cut a piece of giftwrap a bit larger than the area you want to cover.


Once you have the computer know-how to make the monogram, the rest takes less than 10 minutes. In my next post, I will detail how to make the monograms in a few different versions of photo editing software. I originally saw a professional carpenter make a banquette with a slanted back that my friend had made for her kitchen.I loved how it looked, but knew I couldn’t afford a carpenter and would never be able to construct the back. Since I can only sew something simple, I had two cushions made to place on top.   If you want to protect the fabric from spills you can send your fabric to a company that will laminate it before sewing.
Since I didn’t make a back for the banquette I covered six bed pillows ( I sewed them, really simple) in various colors of fabric to add cushioning and interest. When I made it, I asked my dad how he thought the top should be constructed and I went from his idea.
The top is nothing more than a box with a plywood bottom, top, and trim on the sides to enclose supports that are lined up inside. I made two tops that are joined on an angle where the two sides of the banquette meet in the corner.
To learn how to make the monogram using your computer you can find my post about it here – How to Make a Monogram to Print Using Microsoft Word. The only problem – water based sealers – Mod Podge or Polycrylic would make the paper wrinkle.
Use a light coat of spray adhesive on the back of the cut out monogram.  Attach it to the center of your cut out giftwrap circle.


Apply spray glue to the back of the circle and let it get tacky.  Center over stool and apply.
I don’t remember exactly what each measurement was and would have to take the banquette apart to measure the parts of the underside of the top.
I used crown molding I bought at Home Depot under the top to hide the joining of the of the base and the top. Do you feel the same way?    To help coax its arrival, I have been adding pops of fresh cheery color all over my house. The technique I used to make over my sewing machine stool requires no painting skills and is 100 times faster and easier – plus you can easily change it when you want a new look. Use a scrap of giftwrap folded up to smooth out any air bubbles as well as around the outer edge to make sure the edges are adhered.
The drawings I made below are what I remember.  I wish I could ask my dad to help me clarify it, but he is sadly no longer living.
