{ DIY Vintage Tractor Stool }

What a gorgeous Saturday it was today!! My hubby worked half the day ,but was home early enough to get some things done around the outside of our home while enjoying the sun, cool breeze &some refreshing lemonade!! After we mulched the front yard & finished our back patio, we decided & when I say "we" I actually mean my husband decided to do a little DIY'n !!! I can't take any of the credit for this DIY other then taking 'Before & After' pictures ha-ha! I actually almost made him write this post up as well since he's quite the typist! Anyways we had this cool vintage green/rusted tractor seat sitting in our garage & my husband has been itching to do something with it for weeks now..so today we did { HE did }! He had an old 1980's brownish orange stool he  found & thought why not change out the seat for an old vintage tractor seat?!

 




1. First flip the stool upside down & unscrew the seat.




2. Clean up the base ! We used some basic foam cleaner!


3. Screw the screws back into the original holes the old seat was fastened to! You might need washers or larger screws depending on the original stool you use. My husband ran up to ACE & bought some new larger screws for under $5!

 

I'm in love with this rusty gem! I'm still thinking where can I use this at in the house our outside ha-ha! For now it will stay in my hubby's garage/shop area!


I love this little project & for close to nothing!! It also would make a great affordable/customized gift!!


I just love the vintage look paired with the little bit of silver & black!! Any guy would love this "manly" stool! These tractor chairs /stools range in price from $25 all the way up to $100!! We made this for under $15!!!
