It desperately needed a new seat and to be cleaned up. After cleaning it, I decided to keep the original paint job. I love how it is aged and chippy bu still very sturdy.
I took the seat off and found some plywood to cut out a seat.
I cut out some foam and chose a sack I bought earlier in the garage sale season.
Isn't it cool? The other side of the bag has some writing on it as well. When I picked up this bag, I also bought 2 other bank bags the same size. I haven't figured out what to do with those yet, so if you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.
I cut out a section of the sack containing the graphics. I then began to staple the fabric to the seat stapling once on each side in the center as shown above.
I worked my way around doing a few on each side at a time. This is how I stapled the rounded edge. Pull tight then make a small fold then secure it with a staple.
I attached the seat using some screws. I went through the existing holes on the seat through the bottom.
It looks like the seat has always been this way.
