  • Paintbrush
  • Painters' tape or geometric stencils


  1. Detach the seat from the base of the folding stool and lay it on a paper-covered surface.
  2. Brush on an easy pattern freehand or block off areas with painters' masking tape or geometric stencils before painting; let the canvas dry overnight.
  3. Once dried, remove tape and stencils, and reassemble stool for use.
