To Upholster…Or Not?

{If you’re here for the Classic Modern Quilts blog tour, hop down to this post}
I have this cute vintage stool. My great grandmother had a similar one that is now at my great-aunt’s home (Cosco brand – they still make it! Vintage-y looking and all!) I love the bright yellow vinyl but I’ve also been toying with the idea of changing it out. I have bits of this Dwell Studio print throughout our living and dining areas (which are open to the kitchen where the stool main resides).

Too formal?

The same color and same fabric collection in a more casual print

Something totally different with a sweet vintage feel – yet still timeless, right?

And this would be a new look entirely…but I’d keep the yellow vinyl piping for contrast. For all of these options, the plan is to add Pellon vinyl fuse to laminate the fabrics for practical reasons. Should I even bother, though? Is the stool perfect as is?
