A reel blokes stool

"Hi honey, I'm home"
"Hello my gorgeous husband, how was work?"
"Great! Guess what, I brought you something..."
"Sweet, is it an electric tool or some rubbish?"
"YEEESSSS! Bring it in!"

My husband knows the way to my heart >>> a power tool or a piece of hard rubbish lol. The other day he showed up with two electrical reels which I LOVE, almost as much as him.

How could I not turn one into a super manly rolling stool.....

I haven't added any before & afters for a while so this is the perfect project for that. I reckon this would look super duper at a boys study desk OR DRUMS :), or in a man cave. My husband is a bit of a petrol head and loves this. Of course.

We painted this a dark, almost black and added some grey stripe details all around the centre. The top has new foam and was covered in Warwick imitation leather. I just had to stitch a diamond pattern on this to replicate a bike seat, it was screaming out for it. The manly studs finished it off nicely.

Down below are some new heavy duty - but petite castor wheels. Overall the height and width was perfect!
