On a piece of paper, trace around the top of stool. Measure ½ inch in from traced line - cut out oval ½ inch smaller (all around) than the top of the stool. Trace one of the stool legs; measure and mark a line 2 ½ “ from bottom (curved) edge of leg. Cut out 2 1/2” curved strip - it will look like an upside down watermelon slice. Cut 3 more “watermelon slice” pieces.
Sand all wooden pieces; remove sanding dust with damp paper towel. Assemble stool according to package instructions.
Spray all wooden pieces with Krylon White Primer (#51315). When dry, apply a second coat if needed. Allow to dry.
Lightly sand stool and remove dust with damp paper towel.
Spray top of stool and bottom 3 inches of legs with Short Cuts Red Pepper (SCS-033).
Spray one side of the paper oval and one side of each of the “slice” pieces of paper with Easy-Tack (#7020). Wait 5 minutes.
Position the oval (Easy-Tack side down) on the dry stool top so that there is a ½” border all around. Position the “slice” pieces on the outside and inside of each leg.
