Refurbished / Up-Cycled Stool

The team at Gadsbys are multi-talented. Jackie has recently completed the refurbishment / up-cycle of an old, worn-out rattan stool.

Using 100% recycled cotton she wove a new seat onto the stool – leaving her with a great looking, usable stool.

Please note that this is not a service that the Gadsbys Restoration Team offer to clients.
